      Interpretation and Public Outreach Workshops to be Offered by SAA Public
      Education Committee

      The SAA Public Education Committee is sponsoring two workshops at the
      2004 meeting in Montreal, Canada. The first workshop, Dealing
      Effectively with the Public: Proven Strategies Borrowed from Park
      Interpreters, is new to slate of PEC-sponsored workshops and represents
      an introduction to interpretation. The second workshop, Archaeologists
      as Educators: Techniques for Classroom Explorations and Public Outreach,
      will be offered for the third time. This popular workshop will not be
      available again for several years, so take advantage of this
      opportunity. Check the preliminary program, available on the SAA Web
      Page www.saa.org for details.



      Dealing Effectively with the Public: Proven Strategies Borrowed from
      Park Interpreters

      Thursday, April 1, 2004

      1:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M.


      Increasingly, archaeologists understand the importance of interpreting
      their research to the public, especially to on-site visitors. However,
      we seldom graduate with practical training in this area. When we stumble
      in our efforts, often it's because we tried to reinvent the wheel. This
      half-day workshop will introduce some powerful basic concepts from the
      interpretive profession. Through hands-on examples, participants will
      learn to apply these borrowed tools to their own archaeological
      situations. Particular attention will be paid to matching technique to
      audience type. Participants will return home with reading lists, new
      insights, networking possibilities, and loads of inspiration. Instructor
      Linda Derry, an archaeologist with the Alabama Historical Commission and
      is certified as an interpretive guide by the National Association for
      Interpretation.



      Archaeologists as Educators: Techniques for Classroom Explorations and
      Public Outreach

      Friday, April 2, 2004

      8:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M.


      Because most archaeologists lack formal training in educational
      methodologies, they find themselves uncertain when facing or writing for
      audiences of varying ages and abilities. This workshop will fill this
      gap by providing basic information and training in how to use
      educational techniques that apply specifically to archaeologists.
      Workshop facilitators are professional educators with many years of
      experience who have bridged the gap between archaeology and public
      education. Although the workshop is presented at a basic level, more
      experienced archaeology outreach specialists will find it useful for
      refining their approaches. Workshop facilitators include Bonnie
      Christensen, Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of
      Wisconsin - La Crosse; Susan Dixon Renoe, University of Missouri; Megg
      Heath, Bureau of Land Management; Renata Wolynec, Edinboro University of
      Pennsylvania
