Explore Human Experience through Archaeology for Educator's K-12

EDU 533

Humanity, and all it entails, expresses itself through the material culture (objects) it produces.  Participants in this three semester hour week-long exploration will learn how archaeology unlocks the diversity of past human experiences, and how this can be shared with primary and secondary classes.  Participants will discover ways to integrate archaeology into their existing curricula of social science, history, science, math, art, and communication.  Educators will be exposed to sample activities to be used in the classroom as well as receiving first-hand experience in the discovery process, excavating at the Johnson's Island Prisoner of War Depot.  This class is designed for elementary and secondary educators.  (Enrollment limited to 12)
