This social studies unit includes teacher background material, a student text, study guide, and composite pretest/posttest explaining and discussing cultural concepts. It is part of the Anthropology Curriculum Project and is designed to be used in grade 4. The unit objective is to provide students with a background for understanding man and his culture. Subject material is divided into five sections: an explanation of anthropological terms and components, cultural universals and variation, enculturation, and cultural dynamics. The teacher background materials discuss the subjects in detail, emphasizing enculturation, cultural variation, and cultural dynamics. The 54-page pupil text clarifies these subjects by using examples from the Arunta, Kazak, and American way of life. The pupil's study guide introduces each subject, lists key words and ideas, suggests activities, encourages independent thinking by asking questions not answered in the text, and offers review questions. A 14-page glossary defining words underlined in the text concludes the guide. The composite pretest/posttest consists of 50 multiple-choice questions, plus 10 optional questions on cultural dynamics.
