Educational Anthropology: An Overview.
Modiano, Nancy
This paper attempts to summarize the state of the field of educational anthropology, as it relates to studies of educational institutions and processes. Major research done by anthropologists in three areas--school ethnographies, school-community contacts with ethnic minorities, and cognitive and linguistic development--is reviewed. Topics covered are: anthropological studies of schools in Germany, Japan, Mexico, and the Phillippines, school-community work with American Indians and urban blacks, linguistic studies of urban black speech styles, bilingual education projects (Spanish, Cherokee, Chinese, Japanese, French, and Portugese languages), literacy teaching done with Brazilian subjects, the relationship between language and cognition, intellectual development of blacks and children from non-industrialized societies, and learning styles among American Indian children. An annotated bibliography is appended. (KG)
