In 2001, the SAA received a National Science Foundation grant to revise undergraduate archaeology curriculum to reflect the needs of archaeologists in today’s world. As part of this grant, seven principles were developed: (1) discuss the importance of stewardship, (2) take into account the diverse pasts of stakeholders, (3) articulate the social relevance of the past, (4) include a consideration of archaeological ethics and values, (5) teach effective written and oral communication, (6) provide...

Can Archaeology help Decolonize the way Institutions Think? How community-based research is transforming the archaeology training toolbox and educating institutions (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sonya Atalay.

Community-based research requires systemic shifts within institutions, from the way research is funded, protection of human subjects/IRB reviews, ethical guidelines, and what is legible/valued in tenure & promotion decisions. Some of the most important yet least discussed changes must happen in the classroom, in terms of what & how we teach. For community-based archaeologists, we know that process matters. How we conduct research with community partners is essential. The relationships and trust...

The Curriculum Committee’s New Curriculum Resource (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Justin Williams. Nancy Gonlin. Leah McCurdy.

When teaching archaeology, professors are tasked with the difficult undertaking of conveying the essence of a hands-on field that often must be taught within the confines of the classroom. This restriction can make creating effective classroom activities and all-inclusive syllabi a challenge. Adding to the difficulty is the emphasis that research receives at conferences. Latest findings from the field are the focus rather than innovative pedagogy. The SAA’s Principles of Archaeological Ethics...

Introduction to Archaeology is often included in the college/university wide core curriculum (social/behavioral science module), as well as being a required class for undergraduate majors. This inclusion allows us to introduce the SAA curricular goals to a larger community. At the University of Colorado Denver, multiple laboratory sections of 15 students each are attached to very large lecture sections. The laboratories provide hands on exercises tailored to the historic and prehistoric...

Teaching Archaeology through Games: Bringing Interactive Lessons into the Classroom (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Justin Williams.

When teaching archaeology, it may sometimes be challenging to incorporate group work and interactive lesson plans. Due to the sensitive and time consuming nature of archaeological field and lab work, it is difficult to provide a true archaeological experience during allotted class periods. One way in which archaeological lesson plans can become more interactive is through the use of board games. Board games provide an interactive activity which causes students to work together, and the rules can...
