Resources for Remote Teaching
The Kelsey Museum supports self-guided experiences and remote learning through several online resources. These include:
- A live PowerPoint presentation over Zoom that recreates tours in the galleries.
- Images and information about objects in our collection for teaching purposes.
- Digital versions of some experiential learning activities (Interrogating the Object, Burial Boxes, Reading Latin Inscriptions, and Provenance, Provenience, and Problems).
Please contact our Education Department (email@example.com) to learn more and to plan your experience with us. If you would like a live Zoom presentation, we do ask that you please schedule this no less than three weeks in advance to allow our staff time to prepare.
In addition, the Kelsey is now part of the new Online Resources from the University of Michigan Museums. This website, which can be accessed through U-M's Online Teaching page, is a hub where educators can find links to digital collections and other online resources available from U-M's many museums and special collections. Educators can mine these rich collections for materials to use in their courses, or reach out to a museum staff member who can help them craft remote learning experiences.
Resources for On-Site Teaching
There are many ways for you and your students to become involved with the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. We offer interesting and educational tours, programs, and activities for university classes and K–12 school groups. Please follow the links below to learn more:
When you visit the Kelsey and pay a fee for a program, tour, workshop, or class, every dollar goes to the development of educational programming and resources for students and the community. Thank you for your support!
We offer accessible programs for all students visiting the Kelsey Museum. If anyone on your tour (students, teachers, aides, chaperones) needs an accommodation, please contact us so that we can make sure you have the best possible experience.
Resources for Classroom Teaching
Take advantage of our new Teacher Resource Guide for Ancient Egypt, available for free download. This guide has been designed to be paired with the current K-12 curriculum for study of the ancient world and charges students to “think like an archaeologist.” Using research and artifacts from the Kelsey collections, this packet explores topics such as geography, history, art, and religion. Complete with maps, diagrams, object photos, introductory videos, and classroom activities, the Teacher Resource Guide is the perfect classroom companion.
If you have questions, please contact the Education Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (734) 647-4167.
