Archeology Workshop for Teachers
If you've been looking for new ideas to engage your students or have been in search for a new way to challenge your teaching style, then consider joining us at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park for a week in the summer. During our annual Archeology Workshop for Teachers, you will learn about archeology and ways to apply hands on techniques with your students. You'll work side by side with park archeology staff and education staff. And you get to spend a whole week in your local National Park while earning contact hours from Ohio University- Chillicothe!
