Methodology in Pre-Collegiate Anthropology: A Secondary School Approach.
Stephens, James Russel
Today's young people must cope with a shrinking planet earth; deal with complex human relationships and the dynamics of explosive social and technological change; and function in a world which has few precedents especially in the area of social change. This thesis delineates a practical methodology for teaching high school anthropology based on successful programs with eleventh and twelfth-graders in suburban Miami, Florida. The paper has six primary goals: (1) provide a brief historical outline and its relevance for pre-collegiate courses in anthropology; (2) suggest a rationale for establishing anthropology as a key subject in the secondary school curriculum; (3) offer three plans for senior high school courses and to provide some instructional models; (4) propose a teacher-training course which will provide the necessary basics to begin the instruction; (5) provide a list of resources which may be useful in planning and achieving instructional objectives; and (6) provide a philosophical base from which to implement anthropology in secondary schools. Included are illustrations, tables, appendices, and a bibliography. (KWL)
