After nearly two decades of teaching Introduction to Archaeology I have found the perfect solution to engage students in the field of archaeology. That solution is Thinking Strings Revealing Archaeology.
I have enjoyed using Thinking Strings course materials in my larger courses. It allows me to see who is keeping up with their assignments and how well they do on them. That of course helps me when exam come because I can monitor “homework” without having to deal with papers and marking grade sheets.
Classroom lectures are reinforced with interactive homework exercises that engage the students in the excitement of archaeology. All this without additional paperwork to physically handle and grade. It will revolutionize the teaching of introductory archaeology.
