Class Experience

Learners will improve their understanding of Anthropology and gain insight into humans on a large scale. Learners will learn the steps it takes to properly dig and date an archaeology site. Each of the four branches of Anthropology will be covered and learners will gain an appreciation and respect for cultures other than their own. Their own worldview will grow! 
No homework will be required for this class. 
Learners are encouraged to read any and all books they find interesting that we discuss in class, however, no books are required. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
