THE ANTHROPOLOGY CURRICULUM PROJECT--GRADES TWO AND FIVE.
BAILEY, WILFRID C.; CLUNE, FRANCIS J.
THIS DOCUMENT IS A SECOND-YEAR PROJECT REPORT OF A 5-YEAR EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM TO DEVELOP AN ANTHROPOLOGY CURRICULUM FOR GRADES 1 THROUGH 7. THE MATERIAL IS IN A SELF-CONTAINED UNIT PACKAGE FOR EACH GRADE, REQUIRES 4 TO 5 WEEKS PER UNIT, AND IS DESIGNED TO FIT INTO A SOCIAL STUDIES COURSE WITHOUT DISRUPTION OF NORMAL SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. EACH UNIT PACKAGE CONTAINS (1) TEACHER TEXTS, (2) TEACHER GUIDES, (3) STUDENT TEXTS, (4) STUDENT GUIDES, AND (5) PRE- AND POST-TESTS. UNITS FOR GRADES 1 AND 4 WERE TRIED IN 1965-66, AND FOR GRADES 2 AND 5 IN THE SPRING OF 1966. UNITS FOR GRADES 3, 6, AND 7 ARE PLANNED FOR USE IN THE SPRING OF 1967. THE GRADE UNITS EMPHASIZE THE FOLLOWING AREAS--(1) CONCEPT OF CULTURE, (2) THE NEW WORLD, (3) CULTURAL CHANGE, (4) CULTURAL VARIATION AND ENCULTURATION, (5) THE OLD WORLD, AND (6) CROSS CULTURAL COVERAGE OF THE LIFE CYCLE. A TEST OF THE MATERIALS WAS MADE WITH COOPERATING GEORGIA SCHOOLS IN THE SPRING OF 1966, USING THE PRE- AND POST-TESTS, THE STEP INTERMEDIATE SOCIAL STUDIES BATTERY, AND THE CALIFORNIA INTERMEDIATE READING BATTERY. THE REPORT STATES THAT THE RESULTS SHOWED ALL THE CHILDREN IN THE GEORGIA STUDY MADE SIGNIFICANT GAINS IN LEARNING. DESCRIPTIVE MATERIAL OF THE CURRICULUM MATERIALS ARE INCLUDED IN THE DOCUMENT. THIS PAPER WAS READ AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (PITTSBURGH, NOVEMBER 17-20, 1966). (DD)
