About the Event

This course will equip K-16 educators to instruct their students on the rich history of Ancient Egyptian civilization, using modern methods that challenge stereotypes and embrace alternative learning strategies. By focusing on contemporary issues within the field of Egyptology, Teaching Ancient Egypt will present a holistic approach to how educators can present Ancient Egypt within their classrooms. Participants will explore underutilized topics and resources on Ancient Egypt that promote accessibility, inclusivity, and diverse narratives from over four thousand years of Egyptian history. Examples of discussions and activities include deconstructing sensationalized storylines about Ancient Egypt, animal life at the earliest known zoo in ancient Hierakonpolis, the solid silver coffins of Psusennes I, Nubian Pharaohs in Egypt, and how to talk to children about human remains in museums. Together, these topics offer participants a wealth of information and insights in order to instruct on Ancient Egypt confidently in the classroom. This course will use a variety of in-class resources, including video clips, video games, virtual museum tours, Google Earth, peer-reviewed articles, and unpublished case-studies and activities from the instructor.
