Project Archaeology in Oklahoma
Project Archaeology is a national program, supported nationally by the Institute for Heritage Education [insert link here: https://www.heritageeducation.org/] and Southern Utah University – and in Oklahoma, by our very own Oklahoma Public Archaeology Network! By collaborating with educators, descendent community members, and archaeologists, Project Archaeology produces curricular materials about archaeology for K-12 classrooms and hosts professional development workshops for educators. These inquiry-based curricular materials are based on real archaeological sites and aim to teach students four Enduring Understandings:
- Understanding the past is essential for understanding the present and shaping the future.
- Learning about cultures, past and present, is essential for living in a pluralistic society and world.
- Archaeology is a systematic way to learn about past cultures.
- Stewardship of archaeological sites and artifacts is everyone’s responsibility.
