Used Archaeology: Practical Classroom Ideas for Teachers, by Teachers.
Elliott, Rita Folse, Ed.
Early Georgia, v20 n1 1992
This special issue of the bulletin "Early Georgia" provides a partnership of educators and archaeologists to show how archaeology can be translated into the classroom. The multidisciplinary nature of archaeology allows Georgia educators to address many of the Quality Core Curriculum objectives mandated by the state. The book is divided into four chapters, including: (1) "Narratives," written by educators, based on their experiences with archaeology in the classroom; (2) "Exercises," offering exercises and activities to be included in multidisciplinary curriculums; (3) "Bibliographic and Curriculum Materials," containing a list of sources for educators ranging from books and exhibits to curriculum materials; and (4) "Archaeological Ethics," summarizing ethical principles that should guide the practice of archaeology.
