Archaeology in the Classroom: A Resource Guide for Teachers and Parents.
O'Brien, Wendy, Ed.; Cullen, Tracey, Ed.
This resource guide contains information about a wide range of archaeology related education materials available in North America. Resources listed include books, magazines, curriculum guides, resource packets, films, videos, kits of simulated artifacts, computer programs, games, museums, site specific resources, historical societies and organizations, and teacher- training programs. The guide is organized in three parts. "General Resources" are listed first, along with entries pertaining to archaeological techniques, theory, and world-wide archaeology. The next section, "Resources by Subject Area," which forms the core of the guide, organizes entries according to a given area of interest within a geographical region. Entries are listed by the name of either the institution providing the resource or the title of the work. Each entry lists geographical focus, chronological period, nature of the activity or material, topics covered, grade level, price, and a description of the resource with an address for further information. The third section is a "Supplementary Bibliography." Several indexes list the resources by location, grade level, culture, and specialized topic. The document concludes with a bibliography on archaeology for adults, Internet resources, and a list of archeological organizations. (MM)
