Anthropology and the Teaching of Human Values.
Robbins, Richard H.; De Vita, Philip
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v16 n4 p251-56 Win 1985
Argues that college introductory anthropology courses should focus on helping students to examine their values and convictions, not on preparing them for upper level courses. Suggests a teaching approach that relates an issues-and-values orientation to anthropological concepts (culture, beliefs, and values) and topics (means of production, relationships, language, and warfare).
