For more than 30 years, the NEH has supported archaeological education for K-12 students at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. The support has taken a number of forms, including challenge grants that were leveraged to raise an additional $2.355 million. This funding helped the center build an educational staff and develop a distance-learning program. Since 2002, the NEH has also provided funding for professionalization programs for K-12 educators, which bring educators from across the nation to Crow Canyon. During 2016 and 2017, Crow Canyon hosted teachers from 37 states and Washington, D.C.
“The knowledge I gained by being a participant in NEH was transformative. . . My teaching style will get a ‘face lift.’ I will absolutely include hands-on and project-based learning and will include skills that we learned in the lab. I will include primary source documents. . . This was a wonderful learning experience.”
