SOCIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION CONSORTIUM. PUBLICATION 106, ANTHROPOLOGY.
BOHANNAN, PAUL
A CURRICULUM GUIDE OUTLINES THE MAJOR CONCEPTS, STRUCTURE, AND METHODS OF ANTHROPOLOGY FOR GRADES K-6. THE FOLLOWING UNIT AREAS ARE INCLUDED--(1) NEEDS AND NEED SATISFACTION, (2) HUMAN PERSONALITY, (3) SOCIAL GROUPS, (4) SOCIAL NETWORKS, (5) HUMAN CULTURE, (6) CHANGE AND EVOLUTION, AND (7) CURRENT CULTURAL CHANGES. A SUMMARY CHART PRESENTS A FLOW DIAGRAM OF THE FUNDAMENTAL IDEAS OF ANTHROPOLOGY. MAN IS AN ANIMAL THAT IS MAMMALIAN, SOCIAL, AND CULTURAL. HE HAS NEEDS WHICH ARE SATISFIED THROUGH SOCIAL STRUCTURE. SOCIAL STRUCTURE GENERATES ITS OWN NEEDS WHICH ARE SERVED BY OTHER INDIVIDUALS AND OTHER SOCIAL GROUPS. THE COMPLEX OF SOCIAL STRUCTURES OPERATES IN THE MEDIUM OF TRADITION. CHANGES IN TRADITION ARE ACHIEVED BY INNOVATION (INVENTION AND BORROWING), WHICH LEADS TO SIMPLIFICATION OR COMPLICATION. COMPLICATION IS RESOLVED BY FURTHER INNOVATION WHILE SIMPLIFICATION, IF IRREVERSIBLE, LEADS TO EVOLUTION OF CULTURE. THIS PAPER WAS WRITTEN AS PART OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION CONSORTIUM, A CURRICULUM PROJECT DESIGNED TO OUTLINE THE CONCEPTS, METHODS, AND STRUCTURE OF SEVERAL OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES FOR USE BY TEACHERS AND CURRICULUM WORKERS AT ALL GRADE LEVELS.
