What is the Regional Teacher Institute: Boston?


  • Registration is closed.  Thank you to all who attended!

After ten years of hosting an Annual Teacher Institute, the Trust has decided to expand it's professional development offerings with smaller, regional institutes. The Regional Teacher Institute: Boston, Massachusetts is a two-day professional development for K-12 educators focused exclusively on the American Civil War and its relationship to Massachusetts.  The professional development is free, thanks to Tauck, but space is limited to 50 attendees.  The available 50 spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Scholarships Are Available!
