Council on Anthropology and Education Quarterly, Vol. VII, No. 1, February 1976.
Chilcott, John H., Ed.
Eight papers which discuss the teaching of anthropology are presented in the February issue of this quarterly publication. The papers, organized into four sections, represent four major interests of anthropologists. In the first section, the teaching of anthropology as an activity is emphasized. Two authors present ideas on employing the processes and methods of anthropology to teach inquiry skills at the secondary level. Three papers in section two discuss the application of anthropology in three undergraduate programs. These papers are concept-oriented and deal with ways of improving anthropology teaching so that students will gain understanding of social complexities. Section three contains two papers dealing with the problems of teaching anthropology at the community-college level. One of the papers proposes a structural solution to the problems of teaching a traditional introductory course. The second paper reports on a workshop for inservice training of anthropology instructors at all levels. The fourth section contains a paper in which the contribution of mass media communication to anthropology teaching is discussed. News pertaining to the Council on Anthropology and to recent anthropological publications is included in the document. (Author/DB)
