Council on Anthropology and Education Newsletter. Volume III, Number 1.
Singleton, John Ed.
General information on format, included, materials, broad concerns, objectives, and availability of the newsletter are described in Volume I, ED 048 049. This issue focuses on ethnology, offering two papers presented at the American Anthropological Association symposiums. The lead paper presents a psycho-cultural developmental approach to the understanding of individual and group ethnicity, and suggests a framework for viewing ethnic identity in relation to educational programs. The second paper examines the effects of one educational program, Japanese Language Schools in pre-war Hawaii, and suggests a conceptual framework in which the process of acculturation to American society can be viewed. In a third article problems, solutions, and experiments in teaching undergraduate anthropology are analyzed. A new feature, inaugurated in this issue, offers outlines and syllabi for innovative courses in educational anthropology, providing a mechanism through which the content and tactics of specific courses may assist in the growth of educational anthropology.
