Description

Azusa Pacific University Libraries' Special Collections and Educational Programming present a teacher workshop on Sumerian seals from ancient Mesopotamia.

Learn how APU's cuneiform tablet and Sumerian seal collection can be used as primary resources in the teaching of ancient history through a cross-curricular Common Core approach.


In this hands-on workshop, attendees will:

  • Study a sample of the various seals

  • Learn how to make a seal in their classes

  • Discover these items' significance in ancient history and how to incorporate them into lessons meeting California State History/Social Studies standards and framework

  • Take away lesson strategies that can be used immediately in the classroom


Check-in begins at 8:30, and the program begins at 9:00.

Light refreshments will be provided.


Attendees can view the Sumerian seals and related ancient artifacts on display in the library and have opportunity to roll out a seal impression in clay to take with them. Also covered will be the history of writing with a viewing of the cuneiform tablet, a papyrus replica, and related educational materials.
