The following is a press release from the National Park Service.
This summer, Manzanar National Historic Site will participate in the Teacher Ranger Teacher program, offering a professional development opportunity for K-12 teachers to spend Summer 2017 acquiring new skills in experiential learning. The program is provided by a partnership between the National Park Service (NPS) and the University of Colorado, Denver (CUD).
Participants will spend four to six weeks at Manzanar, developing a major educational project and participating in an online graduate course from the University of Colorado, Denver. The goals of the program are to train teachers in the resources and themes of the NPS so that they can return to their schools in the fall and incorporate their new skills into their classroom activities and to reach students from underserved schools and districts by recruiting teachers from Title 1 urban or rural schools and from tribal schools to participate in the Teacher Ranger Teacher program.
