Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Unique in focus and content, this book is the first to focus on the "how" of teaching anthropology across all of its sub-fields -- Cultural-Social, Biological, Archaeology, and Linguistics (and their two dimensions: research and applied studies) -- and to provide a wide array of associated learning outcomes and student activities. It is a valuable single-source compendium of strategies and teaching "tricks of the trade" from a group of seasoned teaching anthropologists -- working in a variety of teaching settings -- who share their pedagogical techniques, knowledge, and observations. It is focused on the applied, "how to do it" side of the pedagogical nature of teaching.

Contains general tried-and-true teaching techniques for all sub-disciplines; specific tips for teaching Biological Anthropology and Archaeology; and specific tips for teaching Cultural Anthropology. Includes team work strategies; tricks for making comprehensible several of anthropology's "esoteric" topics; strategies for demonstrating anthropological perspectives that contradict everyday experience and establish social categories; techniques that use the familiar to illustrate the novel; four articles that directly teach ethnography; and several on technology-related techniques.
