Project Archaeology and the Bureau of Land Management are offering an exciting two-day teacher workshop at the Klamath County Museum in Klamath Falls, Oregon, November 15-16, 2019. Teachers learn first-hand how to engage their students in inquiry-based learning through cross-curricular, student-centered lessons that teach cultural understanding. Register below!

In this workshop, teachers will use geography, history and archaeology to learn about a Great Basin wickiup and the Northern Paiute people. Then teachers can bring the methods and materials back to the classroom to connect students to the past. The curriculum, Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter, is aligned to 3-5th grade common core state standards and will help educators deepen social studies content. At this workshop, teachers analyze historic data related to authentic archaeological sites, discover new ways to engage students at museums and historic sites, and learn how to improve classroom citizenship. Plus, students will read informational texts by and about Native Americans.

Teacher Workshop participants will receive the supplementary guide, Investigating a Great Basin Wickiup, that takes students through an archaeological investigation of a wickiup site to learn about the Paiute people. The informational texts are by and about Native Americans.Click here for a description of the guide.

The first ten teachers who register for the teacher workshop will receive an Archaeology Teaching Kit for their school valued at $149.00.

The teacher workshop includes:

  • High-quality educational materials and instruction
