The Teaching of Anthropology: Problems, Issues, and Decisions.
Kottak, Conrad Phillip, Ed.; White, Jane J., Ed.; Furlow, Richard H., Ed.; Rice, Patricia C., Ed.
This volume brings together the insights of more than 40 contributors who demonstrate that anthropology has timely, important, and enduring messages for students and the public. The book provides the first comprehensive examination of teaching issues across all the subfields of anthropology since the 1963 publication of "The Teaching of Anthropology," edited by Mandelbaum, Lasker, and Albert. The teaching of general, cultural, physical, archaeological, linguistic, and applied anthropology is broadly addressed in the book. This book contains six sections and an introduction. The introduction is "The Transmission of Anthropological Culture Today" (Conrad P. Kottak). Section 1 examines "Teaching the Introductory Course." Section 2 presents "Teaching about Cultural Diversity." Section 3 talks about "Teaching Linguistic Anthropology." Section 4 examines "Teaching Paleoanthropology." Section 5 focuses on "Teaching Applied Anthropology." Section 6 contains ideas on "Teaching Anthropology to Precollegiate Teachers and Students." (EH)
