Teachers who take the November 6th program at Yale can register for part of the program on November 7 if they need to leave early for travel purposes to be ready to return to school on Monday.

Experience Egypt first hand without having to go there. Meet with the people who excavate in Egypt and learn about their work particularly during the Amarna Age of Akhnaton and Nefertiti and the Ramessside Age of Ramses II. Tour the museums with Egyptologists who can talk about own work in preparing exhibits. Receive primary source documents and education materials and share your classroom activities with your fellow teachers.
