TEACHING STUFF

I am teaching the following stand-up classes at SSU. Click on a blue link to access the course syllabus, where available:

ANTH 202 -- INTRODUCTION TO ARCHAEOLOGY
ANTH 420/421 -- ARCHAEOLOGY METHODS
ANTH 503 -- SEMINAR IN CULTURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
ANTH 592 -- PRACTICUM IN NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES

If you're an SSU student (undergrad or graduate) and would like to take either ANTH 496/596 or 496/597 (internships in Archaeology, Archaeological Collections, and Cultural Resource Management) send me an email.

I also serve as chair of several MA committees in the Anthropology Department's program in Cultural Resources Management. In fact, over the years I've chaired over 50 committees. Gevault! If you click here you can see a list of many of our MA theses.

CLASSES FOR NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES


In addition to classes at SSU, I also teach 1-3 day workshops in cultural resources management to Native American tribes. I put on these classes via the Anthropological Studies Center with staff members and students in our MA program.

Topics include:
- Historic Preservation Laws and Regs (federal and State)
- Archaeological Monitoring for Native Americans
- How to Identify and Record Archaeological Sites
- Not all archaeologists are Evil

Classes usually have classroom and field components -- we generally spend the morning in class and the afternoon visiting local archaeological sites.

Among the groups who have asked us to present these classes are:
- The Middletown Band of Pomo Indians ( Twin Pine Casino)
- The Robinson Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians
- United Auburn Indian Community
- Karuk Tribe of California
- Concow Maidu of Mooretown Rancheria
