I have taught this class both online and face-to-face at Fresno State. For Fall 2016, we will only be using Blackboard for the on-line version of the class, as theother sections that I'm scheduled to teach are face-to-face. I will not be adding large numbers of students to these classes (on-line, I'll ad as many as my chair and the dean will allow me, but face-to-face, this particular room only seats 26 students, so I am limited).
THE INFORMATION HERE ONLY APPLIES TO MY FACE-TO-FACE ANTHROPOLOGY 105W CLASS. ONLINE CLASS INFORMATION REMAINS WITHIN BLACKBOARD (for now).
Prerequisite: G.E Foundation and Breadth Area D, satisfactory completion (C or better) of ENGL 5B or ENGL 10 graduation requirement, to be taken no sooner than the term in which 60 units are completed. Examination and assessment of the use of anthropological data and concepts to address contemporary issues in education, health care, law, environmental planning, and social services. Students work on applied problems and write observations, plans, reports, and research documents geared to the needs of professionals, service providers, and particularly planners in modern institutional contexts. (Formerly ANTH 144W)
Here's the current version of the syllabus for the face-to-face class. The syllabus for any online-only sections will be uploaded directly to that class, on-line.
One of my favorite sources for cheap books is AbeBooks.com. I suggest you look there before purchasing from Amazon, the campus bookstores, or elsewhere. If you find a different version of the book, please, check with me before you purchase it.
Chicago Style Guide: You will be required to use this format for citations in this, and all anthropology classes. For all assignments in my classes you are required to cite every source you use (quoted, paraphrased, referenced, or based upon). You MUST use Chicago inline Citation format in your papers. I require all written assignments to include a Works Cited page -- not a Bibliography or Reference page. If you do not know the difference, be sure to ask in class.
Any paper not including inline citations will receive a zero (0). Any paper not including a properly formatted Works Cited page will receive a zero (0).
The Beeb have produced an incredible audio series on the history of Anthropology. Each audio is 15 minutes long and brutally honest and wonderful. Please check it out.
