Description

Class Experience

The purpose of this class is to introduce students to the field of archaeology as a whole as well as emphasize the importance of the field and how they can contribute to the future of archaeology.  In the beginning of each lesson, I will discuss a clear topic and specific goal.  At the end of the lesson, we will discuss how that contributes to the field.  Students will learn by the productive discussions we have, associated homework, and emphasis on how each lesson is intertwined and pertinent to archaeology.     
I have been fascinated with archaeology since I was a child.  My parents encouraged me to follow my passion throughout my life.  I now have my Masters in archaeology and work in the field that I love.  It is now my turn to pass on my passion to another group of kids.  I have traveled to archaeological sites in the United States as well as in Europe, from the Coliseum in Rome to Ephesus in Turkey. I have worked as an archaeologist for three years throughout California, making me well versed in prehistoric and historic archaeological.  I have practical knowledge of how archaeological techniques are done as well as the educational background to teach students how these techniques developed over time.  The traveling I have done will draw the imagination and awe of young minds into the lesson and my practical knowledge will teach them that a career in archaeology is attainable and important.
Students will have a small homework assignment (approximately 30 minutes) at the end of each class.  The assignments are designed to become more complex, as we progress in class, in order to show how the students understanding of the field is developing and progressing. It is important to find a credible source online. Wikipedia is not a credible source but there are plenty of websites, including Nat Geo and Archaeology.org, that have great articles and material.
 2 files available upon enrollment
I will provide any material needed for homework and the lesson via a website link or pdf. It would be beneficial for the student to print the page but it is not mandatory.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Each student will receive a number grade at the end of each lesson.  The scale will be 1-5, 1 meaning the student did not participate at all and 5 meaning the student participated and was engaged the whole time.  At the end of the 4 weeks, I will provide the parent with those grades and an explanation of each score.  The goal is not to deter the student if they receive a lower number but to encourage learning through participation and progress.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Although not intended, the subject of  death (i.e.: tombs and mummies) may be brought up during class.
