The Histrionic Academy offers your students the perfect field trip, an experience they will remember for a lifetime and that will reinforce and bring to life what they have learned in your classroom.
The Path to Independence: Boston is a cost-effective educational walking tour along Bostonís Historic Trail, the content of which is regularly reviewed by our education director, a Massachusetts certified teacher of history. No other tour goes into as much detail about not only WHAT happened in Boston during the American Revolution, but more importantly WHY it happened. Your students will have a first-rate educational experience and will truly enjoy themselves, as our guides are historical interpreters and trained performers who interact with the audience.
Our tour is in line with the Massachusetts Frameworks concerning Boston and the American Revolution. Topics include the Stamp Act, the Townsend Act, the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revereís Ride, James Otis, the Writs of Assistance, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and colonial Boston. Sites visited include, but are not limited to: Boston Common, Granary Burial Ground (James Otis, Sam Adams, Boston Massacre Victims, Robert Treat Paine, Ben Franklinís parents, John Hancock, Peter Faneuil, and Paul Revere), the Boston Massacre site, and more.
