An Evaluation of the Sequential Anthropology Curriculum Project.
Wash, James A., Jr.
An evaluation of materials in the sequential anthropology curriculum project with regard to student learning and teacher training is presented. The project sample consisted of 2,183 students in grades 1, 2, 4, and 5. Two forms of the anthropology achievement test were administered as pretest and posttest measures to experimental and control groups of students within each grade. Test results were analyzed to determine differences in anthropology achievement among students by controlling for sex, group identification, and pretest scores. Two conclusions are that students in elementary school can learn the content of the materials presented by the Sequential Anthropology Curriculum Project and that the effect of special training in anthropology for teachers on the achievement of students remains unknown. Eighteen tables showing means and standard deviations of pretest scores and posttest scores and analysis of variance for posttest scores are presented. (Author/DB)
