Annotated Bibliography on Cognitive Anthropology and Sociolinguistics. Ecological Theory of Teaching.
Meihls, Janet Lee; Streeck, Jurgen
This annotated bibliography focuses on the fields of cognitive anthropology and sociolinguistics. Topics covered include: (1) classroom ethnographies; (2) conversational and discourse analysis; (3) ecological and sociological approaches to the study of education and schooling; (4) ethnomethodology; (5) communication and speech act theory; (6) kinesics/proxemics; (7) the anthropological study of education; (8) anthropological linguistics; and (9) relevant methodological issues. The first section of the bibliography contains brief annotations of journal articles and monographs. In the second section, references selected from the first section are reviewed in greater depth and summarized. This is one of a series of reports that form a part of the initial phase of a project to develop an ecological theory of teaching. The intent of this series is to provide access to the concepts, paradigms, and findings of the disciplines selected for review. The long-range goal of the project is the development of a theory of teaching that approaches and views classroom teaching and learning from an ecological perspective. (JD)
