Teaching A Level Classical Civ. & Archaeology
Hi everyone,

I'm after some advice please...Smile

I teach a class of 16-19years olds Classical Civ: Archaeology and the Mycenaeans, at the moment we are covering Archaeology (my fav subject! Big Grin ) focusing on
? project development
? archaeological prospecting
? excavation
? recording the site and finds
? study, analysis and presentation

Any ideas on how i can make this fun for youngsters? I love archaeology but I'm not sure my own enthusiasm is can I make things like PPG15 etc explainable on their level? Ideally I would like to teach the unit and then take them out to a site to watch an excavation so that they can put what they've learnt into context.

How would you approach the unit if you were teaching it (from an archaeologist perspective- comments from anyone would be great!) I'm new to teaching and I would like to make the learning environment as interesting as possible.

Hope you can help
Thanks all.
