Teaching with Film: Anthropology in the Community College.
McNelly, Geraldine Day
An instructor's experiences in teaching an introductory anthropology course organized around films are presented. Following a description of the atmosphere at the community college in New York City and the characteristics of the students, a rationale is provided which cites films as a means of breaking down the traditional barriers to learning of these students. The films, glossary words, and pictorials used in the 15-week course are then listed on a week-by-week basis. Topics covered are genetics, evolution, adaptive change, cultural adaptation, state formation, and colonialism. Finally, the positive and negative results of the class are discussed, especially in terms of how the students were affected. (DC)
