Cultural Change. Teacher Background Material.
Georgia Univ., Athens. Anthropology Curriculum Project.
This essay on cultural change is intended to provide background reading material for teachers using "The Changing World Today" or "Cultural Change in Mexico and the United States," two textbooks from the Anthropology Curriculum Project. The essay can also be used, however, as a high school semester course in anthropology or as resource material for teacher and pupil use to supplement a social studies course. Part 1 consists of a theoretical explanation of the processes of cultural change, emphasizing the dynamic or changing aspects of culture. Part 2 includes case studies on cultural change selected to illustrate in more detail the change processes described in Part 1. The case studies are organized in three major categories: cultural breakdown, modernization, and planned change. An analytic table of contents provides an overview to the entire study and permits the user to see the progressive development as well as the interrelationships of the theme of cultural change.
