Eduprotocols and Ellis Island

Eduprotocols and Ellis Island

Save Ellis Island is pleased to continue our Professional Learning programs for your educators.

Held on Ellis Island, educators will walk the immigrant’s path as they tour the abandoned hospital buildings. The program will address social studies by immersing teachers in lesson frames (EduProtocols) that offer tools for diverse learning styles and grade levels. EduProtocols can be used in a variety of content areas.

There are two grade level sessions-Grades 2-5 and 6-12.

The program consists of a:


  • Ranger Tour of the National Immigration Museum
  • Guided Hard Hat Tour of the unrestored hospital buildings on the Ellis Island Hospital Complex
  • Session on teaching with EduProtocols 
  • After class access to the National Immigration Museum


Here is what our previous participants have shared:

I loved the resources and strategies to implement in the classroom.  

The eduprotocol information is incredibly useful to me, and the tour of the hospital facilities was fascinating!

There is no other way to truly get a better grasp on what the experience was like to arrive in the US as an immigrant in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

The Hard Hat Tour was the highlight!


The cost is $250 per educator and includes a ferry ticket, lunch, electronic resources, and a certificate for Professional Development hours earned. Space is limited to 25 educators. We do accept purchase orders, credit cards, and checks. Registration payments are nonrefundable.
