Did you know that SHA has a clearinghouse for syllabi and teaching modules?
Have you ever searched the web for ideas for your new classes? Look no further. The Society for Historical Archaeology’s Academic and Professional Training Committee has created an online clearinghouse for syllabi and teaching modules dealing with topics relevant to the teaching of historical archaeology. There are syllabi for courses on historical archaeology, African diaspora/African American Archaeology, Public Archaeology, Regional Surveys, and Special Topics. Check them out for new ideas and projects for your historical archaeology classes.
The website includes links to dozens of syllabi on general courses in historical archaeology as well as courses on specific topics that make up the discipline’s many interests.
Also, if you have great teaching ideas that you would like to share with your colleagues, please send copies of your syllabi or teaching modules to Jodi Barnes (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chris Matthews (email@example.com)
