Bibliographies in Non-Formal Education. Number 1: Non-Formal Education in Anthropological Perspective.
Colletta, Nat J.
One hundred and twenty citations of books, periodicals, and government documents dating from 1913 to 1969 are included in this annotated bibliography of selected anthropological materials related to the influence of culture on the learning process. The bibliography is designed to assist those venturing into the area of "non-formal" education to explore the basic tenets of learning and teaching that have existed in the fabric of many cultures since ancient times. The sources are separated into three broad areas, but many of the references range in content across all three categories. Section A lists general works which treat education from an anthropological view. Section B encompasses a number of case studies of the educational processes in divergent cultural systems. Section C suggests and examines some of the culturally significant variables such as language, world-view, and modes of social control in the learning-teaching phenomenon. Within each section, alphabetically arranged author entries contain complete bibliographic information. (Author/SJM)
