Workshops for Teachers and community historians are available
from Dr. Elaine Cawley Weintraub, the research historian and co-founder
of the Trail. These workshops focus on using the Trail as a model
to demonstrate how every community has the resources and untapped
history to create a community history project. Ways of using archival
research, oral histories, and involving students as research assistants
to a community history venture are explained and the work of students
and community activists demonstrated. Dr. Cawley Weintraub provides
workshops for many of the colleges and universities of the Boston
area. Contact Elaine Cawley Weintraub via E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org,
