LEARNING ACTIVITIES IDEA STARTERS:
Ask students how anthropologists gather artifacts, identify, assess, organized and preserve them.
Ask students to evaluate websites about an anthropological issue (e.g., migration patterns), and compare websites and their critique.
Ask students to select relevant database aggregators (e.g., AnthroSource, Anthropology Plus, Ethnic NewsWatch).
Ask small groups of students to research a topic, each using a different database, and compare process and results.
Ask students to compare the same anthropological topic (e.g., racial categories, Native American bones) in different types of resources (e.g., primary versus secondary sources, professional association versus trade periodicals, online database aggregators versus online search engines, different formats such as video and radio, different kinds of social media such as blogs and wikis).
Ask students to investigate how laws and regulations impact anthropology.
Ask students to compare codes of ethics of different anthropology-related professional associations.
Ask students to create timelines about benchmark events and legal decisions about an anthropological issue (e.g., cultural relativism, pacifism).
Ask students to trace the scholarly path of significant anthropologists.
Ask students to compare anthropological issues (e.g., health) in different countries.
Ask students to research the impact of technology on different anthropological issues.
Ask students to create a Public Service Announcement about an anthropological issue (e.g., recycling).
Ask students to observe and write field notes about group behavior relative to an anthropological issue (e.g., elder care).
Ask students to use analyze a sociological dataset to answer an anthropological research question (e.g., what relationship exists between level of education and culture shock).
Ask students to research and compare religion practices in different countries.
Ask students to critique magazine advertisements relative to ethnocentrism.
Ask students to analyze how anthropological issue (e.g., view of ancestors) is portrayed in television and movies.
Ask students to conduct action research about an anthropological issue (e.g., cultural competency).
Ask students to investigate a career that builds on an anthropology major.
