Maya Past & Present: K-12 Educator Workshop


Featuring Dr. Diane Davies

The online workshop is aimed at participants with basic knowledge of the ancient Maya. Aspects of the Maya civilization will be discussed and their remarkable achievements and popular misunderstandings will be addressed. Examples of teaching activities that can be used across the curriculum, as well as a scheme of work with lesson plans will be given. K-12 educators from all subject areas are welcome to join us in this engaging, online workshop to learn more about the Maya. This online workshop is timed perfectly to help prepare and engage participants for the upcoming 18th Annual Tulane Maya Symposium March 16 - 19, 2023 held in-person at Tulane University. Participants in the online workshop will receive a discount in participation fee for the symposium.

Dr. Davies is an archaeologist, known to many as THE Maya Archaeologist of the UK. She received her PhD in Anthropology from Tulane University working with Dr. Will Andrews and spent many years working here at the Stone Center for Latin American Studies developing educator workshops. She received a National Science Foundation grant to study the Maya archaeological site of San Bartolo in Guatemala, famous for its beautiful murals. Dr. Davies has been working for over 20 years on developing innovative resources for K-12 educators and students to better understand this important culture.
