A team of teachers from Boyceville, WI, begin their exploration of Historic Boston today with their Fund for Teachers grant, with the aim of bringing the importance of early American history to life for second graders by developing interactive activities. Their goal is to create exciting, meaningful learning opportunities that are motivating while successfully meeting Wisconsin State Standards.
"Teachers are as diverse as the learners they teach. Similar to the students we teach, we are continually learning. Our personal goals can be divided into two equally important areas: knowledge and obtaining primary source materials; passion for our profession and desiring to be lifelong learners. This research based fellowship will provide an opportunity for us to immerse ourselves in an enriched set of experiences to significantly improve our current textbook curriculum. 
Our research will lead us to interact with 17th century speaking guides in authentic clothing, role-playing colonial life, while increasing our culturalawareness. We will witness the largest Redcoat/Rebel reenactment in New England and visit many other sites that will enrich our personal understanding of the history of our nation.  As a result of this Fellowship, we will grow professionally while exceeding the Wisconsin Teaching Standards in many ways; specifically, being a reflective practitioner. We, as veteran teachers, will become refreshed, refocused, and inspired!”
