CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY ONLINE (ANTHR 2), SPRING 2017

essay picture This is an INTENSIVE READING/WRITING COURSE; highly self-disciplined students with good reading and writing skills can be quite successful in the course, but students who learn better interacting with teachers/classmates face-to-face should consider on-campus classes instead

The course is entirely online--we will not be meeting on campus. 

We will be using Canvas as our course platform:

Click here to activate your account.  The course will not be available until the first week of classes.  If you have difficulty with the process, please contact the very helpful staff at Cabrillo's Teaching and Learning Center.

Click here to log in during the first week of classes, after your account is activated.

If you want, you can get started on some of our readings early if you want. Our first readings will be "Body Ritual Among the Nacirema" (link to the article here) and "Death Without Weeping"(in the McGraw-Hill reader listed below).

More information about distance learning and Canvas at Cabrillo here. 

If you are waitlisted for one section of the course, please try signing up for the other section before contacting me about adding.  Both sections of the course will be identical, with the exception of the students enrolled in each.

Enrolled students should be prepared to sign in, view the "Getting Started" and "Week 1" modules, and complete the first writing/discussion assignment by the end of the day Thursday, January 26.
