Cultural Development. Social Studies: Course II-Unit II. Teacher's Manual.
Johnson, Ellen K.
This teachers guide for a secondary course on cultural development builds upon earlier sequential learning courses and deals with concepts and generalizations drawn from the field of anthropology. Primary objectives are to develop students' understanding and awareness of culture. Five sections comprise this 10-week course. The nature of culture is presented in the first section. Section two focuses upon early man and how physical environment influenced his culture. The third section, dealing with archaeological methodology, is organized around the question: "How do we find about cultures of the past?" The food producing revolution is studied in the fourth section. Approximately half the manual is devoted to case studies of the two civilizations of Mesopotamia and Peru in section five. Instructional materials suggested include book, slide, and film bibliographies; student readings; and lists of recommended classroom activities. A student manual is incorporated into each section of the guide. Related documents are: ED 048 162, SO 003 169 through SO 003 175. (Author/SJM)
