Educator Workshop for Teachers Grades 5-12

  • University of Vermont (map)

This free workshop offers a unique opportunity for local educators to incorporate the most up-to-date information about human evolution directly from anthropology and archaeology scholars, and works in conjunction with the "Exploring Human Origins" exhibit. The workshop will introduce local teachers to the online, print, and other resources that Smithsonian will make available to them and their students, as well as a set of skull replicas that will be left in each community after the exhibit leaves for continued educational use.  

The workshop is open to all teachers in Vermont public and private schools, as well as home-school instructors. 

Dr. Deborah Blom, the Department Chair and Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Vermont, will lead the workshop. 

To sign up for the workshop, please email Barbara Shatara, Programs and Partnerships Librarian at, or call 802-865-7211.
