If you've followed the blog for a year or more, you've heard plenty about us developing a supplement for Project Archaeology's Investigating Shelter curriculum. You may have seen the blog after we piloted the workshop last summer.

 If not, that's okay.  You can see the workshop in action here!

Though I'm brimming with excitement about our most recent PA workshop, it does look like we've said enough already.  So...why don't I let you hear it from the teachers? 

 Some comments addressed the way we administer the workshop:

FPAN Southwest's Annette Snapp teaches a lesson in this year's workshop

Others highlighted Ranger Emily Palmer's interpretive tour, a staple of the workshop:

As always, Emily leads a fascinating tour for those in attendance...

But this year we also heard from the site's principal investigator, Dr. James Davidson!

Still other feedback highlights the fantastic curriculum itself, developed and classroom tested by Project Archaeology:

Workshoppers have a blast classifying items from a doohickey kit.

...And how well Investigating Shelter meets educational standards:



But my favorites of them all touch on all of those points AND can't wait to put the lessons to use!

As you can see, we love getting feedback--we always want to know what we're doing that works and where we can improve.  But we also want to hear from you!  Let us know if you'd like us to conduct a Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter workshop in your area!
