ANTHROS: A Community Discovery Project for Young People Aged 15 to 20.
AFS International/Intercultural Programs, Inc., New York, NY.
This monograph provides a description of the teaching methods and goals of the "Assessment of Neighborhood/Transnational Human Relations through Original Studies" (ANTHROS) project. ANTHROS is a team-effort community discovery project for young people between the ages of 15 and 20. Its aim is to increase knowledge of the international links of interdependence of peoples and nations and to develop students' confidence in their own potential for influencing international events. Participants learn about the links and relationships that their community maintains with individuals and institutions around the world. This manual was prepared by American Field Service International/Intercultural Programs to provide assistance to teachers and youth group leaders who are thinking about leading an ANTHROS project in their own community. Included in this manual is a report of the activities of the Gowanda (New York) ANTHROS Project, compiled by the student participants. The appendices to the report provide the interview questions used by the students and the consciousness-raising questionnaire completed by the students. (JD)
