Subject: [Wac] Seeking Archaeologists in the Sacramento Area Who Work with Teachers
Dear WAC members,
I am looking for some help on a discussion forum I am co-organizing
with Marcia Bezerra (Universidade Federal do Pará, Brasil) for next
year's Society for American Archaeology meeting in Sacramento. The
forum is focused on issues related to public outreach, archaeology, the
politics of education, and working with schools and educators. We are
inviting scholars who are involved in education projects throughout the
US and internationally to discuss their experiences with schools. We
want the panel to address the issues and challenges archaeologists face
when working with schools as well as issues and challenges that schools
face that can complicate public archaeology projects. Ideally we are
hoping to involve some teachers in the panel, but are concerned that it
will be difficult to get teachers to travel to the conference. I am
looking for archaeologists in the Sacramento area who work with
teachers on public outreach projects. We hope to have at least one
teacher participate in the discussion forum. So if you know of any
teachers who might be interested in participating in the forum please
let me know.
Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions.
