HRAF is pleased to announce a new initiative to expand our engagement with community colleges. The HRAF Community College Initiative recognizes the important role of community colleges in providing students with access to quality, affordable opportunities for higher education.
To support the engagement of community colleges, HRAF is expanding resources for teaching and offering new more affordable membership dues which have been designed to better serve community colleges.
HRAF examines each of the six episodes on the first season of Uncharted to demonstrate how eHRAF World Cultures andeHRAF Archaeology can provide a richer and deeper understanding of the cultural traditions highlighted.
We are also developing a new teaching exercise for Teaching eHRAF to supplement this recent post. Stay tuned!
Our newest teaching activity, Cultures of the World Research Project, is a three-part ethnographic and ethnological research project (research proposal, report, and presentation) specifically designed for undergraduates in introductory level anthropology courses, including those courses offered at community colleges.
The project involves choosing a cultural behavior and comparing it across three cultures: choosing two nonlocal cultures to read about the behavior and a third local culture to study in-person.
One of the exciting and long-awaited new features is a Notebook where users can store their own material, create annotations, labels, search within their selections, and save material for teaching exercises.
