Welcome! SAPIENS brings the world of anthropology to the public. Now we would like to help you bring SAPIENS to your classroom. Below you will find SAPIENS teaching units for anthropology’s four subfields that are crafted for introductory courses. These units offer an opportunity to use SAPIENS content in the classroom, alongside additional resources, to enrich the teaching and learning experience. Feel free to incorporate those that interest you into your syllabus or teaching schedule.
Each unit is comprised of a brief summary of the subject matter, two SAPIENS articles, a list of keywords, talking points for professors, academic articles, student discussion questions, activities, and finally, additional resources. Hyperlinks lead you to such online resources as the main SAPIENS articles for each unit, keyword searches that can help you find related magazine content, and select activities and additional resources.
This curriculum is a work in progress—so please browse often to discover additional resources and units. We welcome your feedback: Please let us know how we can improve!
