The New York State Museum is pleased to offer a two-day workshop entitled "Archaeology for the Classroom". Archaeology is a science that reaches into many disciplines making it particularly useful for teaching not only about archaeology but other subjects including the natural sciences, history, math, language arts, geography, social science, and the arts. This approach is consistent with the Core Curriculum changes being implemented across New York State. This workshop provides educators with classroom lessons, activities, and projects designed to expose students to the excitement of archaeology that are stand-alone or connect to other curricula. Information about the advantages of object-based learning, using a museum as an educational resource, and applications to the State Learning Standards will also be presented. The workshop is open to all teachers although content is particularly geared toward teachers in grades 2-8.
Dates: July 23-24, 2013 (Tuesday-Wednesday)
Times: 8:30- 4:30 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Fee: $30 (16 contact hours). Price includes all lectures and behind the scenes tours, visual materials, and resources for classroom application.
Location: New York State Museum
Registration deadline is July 1, 2013.
