These resources can be used to enhance teaching and learning with the Perspectives textbook. We hope to expand this collection over time with contributions from instructors.

By January, 2020 ancillary materials will also be published, including test banks, PowerPoint slides and lab manuals. If you (adopting faculty) develop any ancillary materials you would be willing to share as open access materials on this website, please contact us at:

Teaching and Learning Anthropology Journal

Teaching and Learning Anthropology (TLA) publishes analytical, reflective, and review articles on the topic of teaching and learning anthropology. The journal also publishes original undergraduate and graduate anthropological research and writing. We seek to engage a broad audience of faculty and students through open-access publishing. TLA also publishes a variety of teaching anthropology resources that can be found on this website



Perspectives: An Open Invitation to Cultural Anthropology

Our sister textbook, Perspectives, is the first comprehensive, open-access cultural anthropology textbook. It offers a collection of chapters on the essential topics in cultural anthropology. Similar to Explorations, this book is an edited volume with each chapter written by a different author. Each author has written from their experiences working as an anthropologist and that personal touch makes for an accessible introduction to cultural anthropology.
