Anthropology. Teacher Edition. Revised [and] Student Edition.
The teacher and student editions of this book introduce students to the subject of anthropology and the subfields into which it is divided. Students learn about the beginnings of anthropology as an outgrowth of the curiosity stimulated by the Age of Exploration and how it grew into the basic field it is today. Students examine the origins and evolution of the human species, as well as become aware of a wide variety of recent and contemporary societies. Students learn that people share certain basic needs despite differences among lifestyles and beliefs. The self-directed activities emphasize higher-level thinking skills and the activities have been keyed to Bloom's Taxonomy: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Other higher-level skills such as fluency, flexibility, originality and risk-taking are encouraged. Sections of the books include: (1) "What is Anthropology"; (2) "Human Evolution"; (3) "The Ages of Man"; (4) "Culture and Society"; (5) "Subsistence Techniques"; (6) "Early Civilization: The Urban Revolution"; (7) "Technological Adaptations"; (8) "Economic Organization"; (9) "Social Organization"; (10) "Political Organization"; (11) "Ideology and Religion"; (12) "The Arts"; (13) "Language and Other Ways to Communicate"; and (14) "Just for Fun!" Tests, quizzes, a crossword puzzle, answers to all activities, a glossary, and a 21-item bibliography also are included. (EH)
