Listing of Education in Archaeological Programs: The LEAP Clearinghouse 1990-1991 Summary Report.
Knoll, Patricia C., Ed.
This is the second catalog of the National Park Service's Listing of Education in Archaeological Programs (LEAP). It consists of the information incorporated into the LEAP computerized database between 1990 and 1991. The database is a listing of federal, state, local, and private projects promoting public awareness of U.S. archaeology including prehistoric, historic, terrestrial, and underwater. The listing categorized these educational activities among adult education, popular articles, audiotapes, brochures, ceremonies/dedication/commemorations, classroom presentations, community outreach, exhibits, films, newspaper articles, popular publications, posters, press releases, school curricula (elementary, middle, secondary), public service announcements, radio spots/interviews, slide presentations, television spots/interviews/programs, tours, videotapes, and volunteer involvement. Information in the report has been organized into chapters by major product categories: (1) posters, (2) brochures, (3) exhibits and displays, (4) public participation programs, (5) education programs, (6) audios/videos/films, (7) broadcasts, (8) press articles, (9) popular publications, and (10) community outreach. Product subcategories provide additional methods and materials under the main category. The catalog is based on product descriptions, and all the reported public awareness activities are listed by their general programs with a project summary and an identification of sponsoring agency or organization and contact person. Cross-referenced indexes list products by state, detailed categories, sponsoring agencies, and projects or programs. The products included are usually geographically specific and cover all time periods of North American human occupation. The products integrate cultural and natural resources to reach a broad audience and meet specific conservation objectives. The objectives of the national strategy for federal archaeology are included. (DK)
