A recent article by Leah McCurdy and Nan Gonlin entitled "New Curriculum Resource Webpage by the SAA's Committee on Curriculum and You!" may be of interest to those involved in the teaching of archaeology.  Appearing in the May 2016 issue of the SAArchaeological Record (http://www.saa.org/Portals/0/SAA_Record_May2016.pdf) the article describes the goals of the SAA Committee on Curriculum (CC) and invites readers to contribute activities and syllabi which they have found to be effective teaching tools.  These submissions will over time result in an archive that will be useful to new instructors as well as  veterans of teaching. 

The authors report that activities will be posted in 2 categories: Archaeological Methods and Concepts and Archaeological Stewardship.  Submissions to the archive and extant postings are available  using the URL: http://www.saa.org/AbouttheSociety/EducationandOutreach/CurriculumCommitteeResources/tabid/1523/Default.aspx

  • Awesome! Leah is a good friend of mine. I used to work with her in the Mopan Valley (on the other side of Belize from where I am now). She just published a kids book in English, Spanish, and Yucatek Mayan with some of our friends at the Institute of Archaeology here, for distribution in classrooms. It is great. Her teaching  resources are wonderful.
