The Review of and Reaction to Selected Anthropology Projects by Professional Anthropologists.
Dynneson, Thomas L.; Taylor, Bob L.
The main concern of this paper is to determine the accuracy and representativeness of anthropology material from: Anthropology Curriculum Project (ACP); Education Development Center's Man A Course of Study (MACOS); Materials and Activities for Teachers and Children (MATCH); University of Minnesota's Project Social Studies; Anthropology Curriculum Study Project (ACSP); and High School Geography Project (HSGP). The materials analyzed in this study were submitted to a panel of professional anthropologists made up of five members of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Colorado, with different specialties--cultural, physical, archeology, and linguistics. A questionnaire was specially designed for the study and was divided into three parts--printed material, audiovisual material, and summary statements on specific and general items in the material. The project materials were all rated accurate and representative, though every project had some minor discrepancies or specific items to which the anthropologists took exception. (Author/JLB)
