Archaeology For Native American Educators:  Building Curriculum,
Building Bridges

This five-day workshop, sponsored by the Society for American
Archaeology, will provide up to 30 Native American educators with
materials and strategies for developing curricula using the scientific
concepts and findings of archaeology.  Curricula developed during this
workshop can be used to teach a host of disciplines - mathematics,
science, writing, fine arts, and other skills - to children in grades
K-12 (target grades 4-8). Besides showing how archaeology can be used to
help teach multiple subjects, the workshop will give educators the
opportunity to evaluate the usefulness of existing archaeology education
materials and adapt them for their own instructional needs.

The workshop is scheduled for August 4-8, 1997 at Haskell Indian Nations
University, Lawrence, Kansas.  Room and board will be provided, and
travel stipends for $150 will be available to all registered
participants. Shuttles to and from Kansas City International Airport
will be available.

Instructors include:
Pam Wheat, M.A.; Texas Historical Commission
Jeanne Moe, M.A.; Bureau of Land Management, Utah
Ramson Lomatewama; Adjunct Professor, North Central College, Illinois
Joelle Clark, M.A.; Northern Arizona University
