Spring 2013 classes are full!! Please do not email me asking for an add code at this time. I sympathize with everyone's need for classes, and I genuinely wish we could accommodate everyone, but we cannot. Currently my courses are full and have full waiting lists, and I cannot add any students until after classes begin (if at all). I cannot respond individually to each email request, so please do not be disappointed if you do not hear from me. If you are still in need of courses when the fall semester begins, you need to show up on the first day of class- IN PERSON. Again, I may not be able to add anyone, but if you are not in class on the first day, I will not add should space become available. Thank you!
This class is designed as a scientific, hands-on introduction to the field of Physical Anthropology and covers 5 major topics: Genetics, Osteology, Forensic Anthropology, Primatology, and the Human Fossil Record. Throughout the course, students will work directly with skeletal materials, artifacts, and three-dimensional models in order to explore humans and their place in nature. The course is designed for non-majors; however students must be currently enrolled in or have already completed Physical Anthropology 1 in order to enroll in the class. The class is a laboratory course. As such, the emphasis is on hands-on activities, exercises, films, and discussion rather than lecture. Each class will revolve around 1-2 activities, which will be introduced at the start of each class. There will be no opportunity to work with materials or view films outside of class; thus attendance is absolutely necessary in order to do well. We will work, but we will also have fun, and I promise that it will be better than you are expecting!
The syllabus can be accessed via the 'Lab Syllabus' link at the bottom of this homepage. Please be sure to print a copy and bring it with you to class. In an attempt to use a little paper as possible, all other course materials (aside from your textbook) will be posted here as well. It will be your responsibility to check in to the class website regularly and print out or access the appropriate materials for each week.
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
HOMEWORK You will rarely have homework for this class. Occasionally I will assign short readings from your text for the following week’s class. The readings are meant to provide a foundation for what you will be learning in class. You will not be expected to memorize everything in the text, however. You will be tested only on the information we cover in-class. Please refer to the course syllabus (clink link at the bottom of the page) for all course details.
* Academic Honesty Students are expected to abide by the code of ethics established by Santa Rosa Junior College, which states “Academic dishonesty is regarded as any act of deception, benign or malicious in nature, in the completion of any academic exercise. Examples of academic dishonesty include cheating, plagiarism, impersonation, misrepresentation of idea or fact for the purpose of defrauding, use of unauthorized aids or devices, falsifying attendance records, violation of testing protocol, inappropriate course assignment collaboration, and any other acts that are prohibited by the instructor of record.” Don’t Cheat. It may get you an F in this course. * Please respect the classroom, your fellow students and yourselves by turning off all cell phones, MP3 players and any other electronic devices. Also, please refrain from personal conversations during class. * Please show up to class on time and ready to participate. Formal attendance will not be taken, but if you will be absent for more than 2 class meetings, please let me know. * Have fun! This should be relatively painless, and if you have any questions please feel free to come and talk to me. I love talking to students about Anthropology or anything else.
