Anthropology and Education Quarterly. Special Issue: Anthropological Resources and Teaching.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v8 n1 Feb 1977
The theme of the journal of the Council on Anthropology and Education focuses on anthropological resources and teaching. Nine major articles comprise the special issue of the journal. The first article traces the development of the academic study and teaching of anthropology beginning in 1501. Although mentioned as early as the 1500s, anthropology did not emerge as a distinct discipline until the turn of the 19th century. The second article reports how a communications perspective and visual materials have been utilized to revitalize introductory area courses and discusses what might be done to incorporate a contextual understanding of mass media into classroom instruction. Using films, classmates, visitors, and museum artifact analysis, the third article presents ideas on four simulations which can increase undergraduate involvement in anthropology courses. The fourth article examines curriculum models for teaching anthropology. The Fifth article describes an elective physical anthropology course for the eighth grade. The sixth article shows how an anthropology learning center is used for grades three through six. The seventh article presents techniques to aid anthropologists who are asked to speak to elementary school classes. The eighth article discusses pre-collegiate anthropology materials. The final article, written by the editor, presents views on the future horizons of anthropology and education. (Author/JR)
