What Workshop Participants Are Saying

Wickliffe Mounds, Ballard County, 2000
"I was not aware of the 'laws' regarding 'collecting.' Actually, I found the entire workshop exciting because my prior knowledge was extremely limited. This was one of the Best most informative and most needed workshops I have attended."
"The approach was so fantastic for all activities - hands-on, expertise, discussion - I guess what I found most interesting was how to translate the study of archaeology to the classroom."
"This is a great approach to teach archaeology in any part of the state (or country)."
"I was surprised how much of what we studied and read correlated with our Kentucky curriculum.  I also enjoyed learning about all the laws that protect 'burial sites or grounds.'"
"The additional teaching materials and background info is invaluable for expansion, ideas, and other methods of teaching the topic.  Thanks!"
Russell-McDowell Intermediate School, Greenup County, 2000
"The prehistoric story of Greenup County will be very relevant in the classroom."
"Realized how important it is not to disturb the artifacts.  These are so important to us in order to learn more about our past."
North Central 4-H Camp, Nicholas County, 2000
"Excellent presentation and information.  I plan to incorporate into my established lesson plans."
"I learned about things unique to the area.  I loved learning about the past of the Neal-Rice Site and I can tell my kids about something so close to them."
"It was all interesting. It gave me more insight that I can pass along to my students. Resources are great - Thanks!"
Kentucky History Center, Franklin County, 2000
"Good mix of practical classroom application, and 'hands-on' experience."
"I thought you did an outstanding job presenting this information.  By far the best workshop I've had the opportunity to attend."
Kentucky History Center and Salato Wildlife Center, Franklin County, 2001
"What a perspective!  What great fun!  What a spiritual experience!"
"Thank you for an educational and stimulating experience."
"The conservation issues were very interesting along with the laws and the regulations. I have been collecting artifacts from the tobacco field for a while and I never realized the importance of documentation of the artifact. I will highly recommend the program to others."
"Archaeology is so much more than a dirty dig."
McConnell Springs, Fayette County, 2002
"This was a very organized, interesting in-service.  I like the way it was presented.  I feel that I benefited a great deal.  This was one of the best workshops I have attended.  I like the way I can incorporate many of the activities in the classroom.  What an innovative way for the children to learn about themselves!"
"I think this workshop has covered everything my students and I would need to know about archaeology."
"I now have many ideas for lessons with my class."
"The whole workshop was really interesting.  I was very skeptical about how archaeology can be taught to young children. I have realized it is not impossible and will be a lot of fun!!"
Camp Nelson Civil War Heritage Park, Jessamine County, 2003
"Solid science and math concepts connected to archaeology.  My awareness of issues surrounding archaeological conservation has increased greatly."
"I appreciated the discussions on ethics and context.  Things that I knew in theory were explained through the eyes of those in the field with a passion for their jobs - very informative. I am gaining a better understanding and a better idea of the importance of impressing issues of archaeological conservation on my students."
"One of the most interesting things I learned was the importance of respecting artifacts and human remains.  I also especially enjoyed the Kentucky-specific information, slides, pictures, etc.  It really was a wonderful workshop. I learned a lot and the food was great!"
Clay County High School, Clay County, 2005
"This was one of the best in-services I have ever attended."
"Nicely organized and presented, thought-provoking as well as informative.  The fieldtrip was stellar."
Riverside, The Farnsley-Moremen Landing, Jefferson County, 2006
"Fascinating 'local' impact of the importance of archaeology. Would love to have a 'Project Archaeology II' follow-up.  You guys were great!!  Thanks."
