News and Notes on the Social Sciences. Spring 73.
Brown, Thomas E., Ed.; Hahn, Carole, Ed.
"News and Notes" is published periodically during the academic year. Topics of typical issues are rotated to include each of the several social science disciplines and social science education. Usually included are: 1) A lead article focusing on what's new in the social sciences; 2) Descriptions of social studies/social science classroom practices; 3) Discussions of curriculum materials and projects; 4) Reviews of materials; 5) A list of resources mentioning instructional materials, and professional resources; 6) Guest commentaries; and 7) Announcement of events, conferences, and workshops. The lead article in this issue by Judith Hansen and Judith Kasper entitled "The Cultural Analysis of Schooling: Theoretical Perspectives from Anthropology" describes the major features of several theoretical frameworks currently used in anthropological research. In addition, the authors suggest ways in which each approach might be applied to studies of schools as sociocultural systems. The classroom section of this issue describes four specific anthropology teaching programs. (SJM)
