[Teaching Resources] Explaining Human Culture

If you’re looking for a way to give your students a sense of how cross-cultural research is conducted, we highly recommend the Explaining Human Culture, produced by the Human Relations Area Files

Of note are great summaries on childhood, adolescence, games and sport, and hunter-gatherers.

Each summary outlines cross-cultural findings on a wide array of topics (e.g. gender differences, children’s play, alloparents, etc.). In the “What we do not know” section at the end of each summary, students can find a list of questions that remain unanswered, the perfect resource needed for peaking curiosity, and for finding a topic for a research project, and beyond!
