Educating Children on Texas Archaeology
Author(s): Katy Jones
This paper will discuss the education of school aged children in the archaeology of early Texas. How to create a program that is easily condensed into a two hour time window that will engage children of all ages, be easy for teachers to follow up on, and will generate positive intellectual growth in the children. Steps include creating a proposal for schools which will meet the core state educational requirements, devising methods that will work in multiple environments, and achieve a goal set forth. This discussion is of early of Texas children learning about early Texas but should be easily adapted for any state and any level of Anthropologist (Undergrad student through college professor) to teach and inspire. Exposing children to archaeology and inspiring them to think critically is the goal, as well as offering insight into what college may have to offer them.
