“VERY useful and fun. I think the students would love them. They go wonderfully with chapters from Nanda’s Cultural Anthropology intro book! I am excited to see this go to print and use it.”
“I like how open-ended the questions are. The exercises do a great job of pushing students out of their comfort zone and into conversations and situations in which they might feel a little silly or even like an ‘outsider’. I think that’s very important for any student of anthropology in order to allow them to take a step back from their own cultural biases and preconceptions.”
“The exercises are simple, short, and to the point. They shouldn't take too long, yet prompt the student to delve deeper into the concepts. I like the format of these exercises.”
