TRT & Science Teacher Workshops

Connecting teachers to Shenandoah National Park connects students to their national park. Your support is funding two programs in Shenandoah National Park that link teachers and the park:

Teacher-Ranger-Teacher: The Teacher-Ranger-Teacher (TRT) program turns teachers into Park Rangers for the summer with an extended professional development opportunity that lets them learn about resources and educational materials available through the National Park Service. The experience provides the opportunity for a deeper understanding of the park and park resources, and are able to develop a lesson(s) to be used in their classroom or school.

Earth Science Teacher Workshops: These shorter workshops bring educators to the park for detailed learning experiences that they take back to their classrooms and students
