Past Meets Present: Archaeologists Partnering with Museum Curators, Teachers, and Community Groups (Springer, 2007). This volume provides models for implementing public outreach programs with an emphasis on collaborative community partnerships. Effective collaborative models enable the archaeology of the past to meet the educational and interpretive needs of the present. While service-learning has been around as a pedagogy since the 1960s, it has only recently arrived in archaeology classrooms. For more than fifteen years, Baugher has applied service-learning to archaeology, combining teaching, research, and community outreach in four different courses with a service-learning component. She developed an archaeological model and tested it in her classes at Cornell. Baugher discusses these techniques and suggests how her archaeological model can be applied to other universities. In addition to coediting the collection, Baugher provided two essays: “Service-Learning: Partnering with the Public as a Component of Archaeology Courses” and “Public Interpretation, Outreach, and Partnering: An Introduction.”
