The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of
Wisconsin–La Crosse will offer a three-week NEH Summer Institute on July
14–Aug. 1, 2014. This dynamic learning experience for K-12 teachers
will explore how Native Americans and Euro-Americans have adapted to the
Upper Mississippi River Valley over the past 13,500 years, and how
archaeology leads to an understanding of how human cultures change and
adapt through time.
The Institute will feature a one-day excavation experience, field trips
to archaeological sites, hands-on laboratory and workshop activities,
demonstrations, and classroom activities. Individual projects will help
participants tailor the content to their own teaching areas. NEH Summer
Scholars receive a $2,700 stipend to help offset their expenses.
