Program in Anthropology and Education: Research Center in Anthropology and Education. Final Report.
American Anthropological Association, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this program was to discover and to help bring about a more effective articulation between anthropologists and the research and development needs of the schools. To that end, a number of crucial activities were undertaken coincident with the creation of university-based centers. A national conference was organized to assess the current status of anthropological method and theory and the effect on future research in school settings. Then, a series of four research training programs for school personnel in selected ethnographic techniques for observation and analysis of classroom behavior were developed (Guided Self-Analysis by T.W. Parsons). The newly created Council on Anthropology and Education organized five symposia on: research theory and method, cognitive and linguistic studies, curriculum development, and, the socio-cultural context of education. A national roster of educational research anthropologists was completed, and, the development of a bibliography of research studies was assumed by Murray Wax (Wenner-Gren Foundation Grant). Abstracts of selected papers have been included, however, the proceedings of the conference will be published later by University Microfilms. (SBE)
