10 Red-flags for spotting unreliable resources on the Maya

    Since the ancient Maya have been added to the Key Stage 2 national curriculum for History (non-European Study) in the UK, there’s been a ‘mushrooming’ of online resources covering the topic, most of which are inaccurate.

    Being a Maya archaeologist I thought it would be extremely useful for teachers to know what they need to be looking out for to confirm a resource’s unreliability.

    The 10 tell-tale signs that expose unknowledgeable sources can be found on my blog here.

    Do spread the word to other teachers trying to plan this topic.

    Great website, @dianeelizdavies. Far more useful than that documentary I saw.

    Schools would do well to visit it.

    Thank you! I am currently working on unit and lesson plans for the topic with teachers, as well as videos and images to be downloaded for free from my website. This should be up there by November, though If there is anything else that would help you in teaching this topic, just let me know.
