Fundraiser! Help Project Archaeology Publish Investigating Rock Art
Project Archaeology: Investigating Rock Art, our first unit in a new series of special topics curricula, explores artistic expression in the archaeological record. Investigating Rock Art is an exciting new way to transform students’ perceptions of art and culture. Art has always been an important part of cultures in North America and throughout the world; its expression in the archaeological record broadens our view of past cultures and their life ways. This volume focuses on the amazing rock art panel at the Red Army Rock Shelter in northwestern Colorado. Future investigations will localize the curriculum to areas throughout North America. The guide consists of five lessons and a final performance of understanding. Lesson Four is an investigation of the rock art panel from both archaeological and Native American perspectives.
The new guide is now available in draft form and we need your help to review it, finish it, and then publish the final guide. By offering the draft copy for sale online, we are hoping to achieve three main goals:
- – Generate enough funds to complete the new guide and print it for distribution through the website or through professional development workshops.
- – Begin production of site-specific rock art investigations to allow archaeology educators to localize the curriculum unit to their area. Several of our coordinators have expressed interest in developing rock art investigations, so now is the time to get going! Please contact Jeanne at firstname.lastname@example.org to work out the logistics and funding for your investigation.
- – Receive additional peer reviews and classroom assessments. If you would like to provide a peer review of the draft, download the review documents: Part I and Part II. Return them to Jeanne by November 1, 2015.
