ANTHROPOLOGY

6th Grade GT ELECTIVE-ANTHROPLOGY

 

Welcome. Be prepared to grow your mind!!!!!!! The semester curriculum will investigate 2 of the four 4 sub disciplines of anthropology: biological and cultural.   This will give you knowledge of human diversity through evolution and migration. We will look at how this developed objectivity/subjectivity and stereotypes/biases. You will practice this knowledge with an ethnography of a major other than your own using tools that include observation, surveying, and interviews.

You will create products that fit your learning and complete goals as according the ALP (advanced learning plan) we write. I am very excited to be working with you. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Thank You
