Culture of Schools. Final Report. Volume III.
American Anthropological Association, Washington, DC.
The third volume of this 4-volume report contains the last two speeches, on educational philosophy and the role of reason in society, from the Colloquium on the Culture of Schools held at the New School for Social Research (preceding speeches are in Vol. II, SP 003 901), reports on conferences on the culture of schools held in Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., in 1966, and selections from "Anthropological Perspectives on Education," a monograph to be published by Basic Books of New York. Two of the seven papers presented at the Pittsburgh conference are included: "Education and Social Stratification in Contemporary Bolivia" and "Anthropology and the Administration of Schools: A Structural Analytic Approach." Papers from the Washington, D.C., conference are subsumed under four general topics: the schools as cultural instructional systems, the development of curricula in anthropology for schools, the preparation and support of teachers, and the development of anthropology and education. Monograph selections appearing in this volume are: "The Shaping of Men's Minds: Adaptations to Imperatives of Culture;""Early Childhood Experience and Later Education in Complex Cultures;""On Communicative Competence;" and "Hippies and Social Change." Further monograph selections appear in Vol. IV (SP 003 903). [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (RT)
