Anthropology Teaching Resources
On Teaching Anthropology
- Research Labs in Archaeology (RLA) at UNC - Chapel Hill on teaching archaeology in general and in North Carolina (geared toward high school students but some content is very helpful in thinking about designing a class and some activities are appropriate for college students, too)
- "Making Archaeology Teaching Relevant in the XXI Century" (Matrix), archaeology syllabi and class materials (may be going offline soon)
Resource and Activity Banks
- AAA Teaching Materials Exchange, search for syllabi and teaching materials that others have posted.
- Human Relations Area Files (HRAF), collection of coded ethnographic and archaeological data from around the world which can be used as a teaching and research tool
- The Digital Archaeological Record, a repository for data and publications from archaeological sites around the world that can be used for teaching and student research projects
- "Exploring Historical Archaeology," teaching resources from The Society of Historical Archaeology
- Resources for teaching ethics by The American Anthropological Association
- The Society for American Archaeology K-12 teaching resources
- Interactive webpage on race and how anthropology helps demistify it (part of a larger program called "Race: Are We So Different," and provides dynamic web content that is very useful in the classroom)
