The Freedom Trail Foundation supplements the history and social studies curricula for third and fifth grade students with a robust in-school history program. The program is designed for all schools, with scholarships available for qualified schools. Program visits take place from October through mid-April.
The Freedom Trail Scholars Program is a one hour in-school interactive classroom by professional actors. It incorporates the events and characters of the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s Ride, or the Battle of Bunker Hill in a dramatic re-telling of the principles and facts of the American Revolution. This is an engaging and time-efficient way to teach history, where costumed characters take on the roles of real people and retell their stories.
The Freedom Trail Scholars Program creates an intimate partnership with schools to meet their curriculum goals and complement teacher lessons. Many schools book for repeat performances. Since its inception, the Foundation has presented the program to over 29,500 school children. Because of the interactive nature of the performance, audience size is restricted to 60 students per performance.
The program also includes curriculum guides for teachers, a bibliography, and teaching materials.
Your school may qualify for a discounted program. Please contact the Freedom Trail Foundation office to see if your school qualifies to receive the program for this discounted rate.
