Enhancing Archaeology Education and Outreach in Iowa through Project Archaeology

Author(s): Elizabeth Reetz; Lynn Alex

Year: 2015


Iowa has been an active partner in Project Archaeology since 2002, joining at a time when the national program was redefining its mission, recreating its curriculum, and expanding its partnerships. This presented the opportunity to assist in determining the scope and direction of national Project Archaeology while remaining cognizant of the challenges Iowa would face as a state where curriculum decisions are locally determined. Thirteen years later, Iowa PA has a stable foothold with dedicated institutional resources, established statewide partnerships, and its own place-based curriculum. Promising new initiatives include environmental education and university-based partnerships.
