I have used these teaching and testing resources (printable and online) successfully for several years.
Archaeology students need to be familiar with a range of terms to help with their discussion and interpretation of the evidence from a ritual and religion perspective.
Ideally, terminology should be introduced alongside the appropriate case studies / examples. One way of doing this is to ask students to compile an ongoing glossary of important terms. Students should fill out the appropriate section each time a new term is introduced.
Terms should be reviewed and revised before an exam or test.
Both a teaching template (with suggested answers) and a blank template for use by students during lessons, for compiling a glossary and / or testing, have been included in this pack.
When used for testing:
• Allow about 2 minutes a question.
• There are 64 questions so it will take about 2 hours to complete them all.
• Suggestion: Attack it in bite-size chunks e.g. 10 -15 at a time.
(Students’ answers and examples do not have to be exactly the same as the ones given here. In fact a range of different ones that the class could share would be better!)
NOTE: A link to an online version has been included below for teachers who would like to provide students with an opportunity to revise the terms at home at the end of a course, before an examination. This would be particularly suitable for e.g. AS Archaeology (AQA 2010) ARCH1 in the UK.
These printable activities are ink-friendly.
A Word version of the blank template is also available to teachers who wish to customise the questions or format. Once you have purchased the pack you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send it to you.
Thanks for looking. I hope your students find the activities useful!
