Regarding quality: There is an excellent documentary on fieldwork called “The Anthropologist” on Amazon Prime (free is you have Prime).
we use it and love it
Sending a reading list would be a good idea.
How large is the class?
What are the prices of all these texts? They are not free, are they?
Which book was dense and students were getting lost?
That's great news.
It would be very useful if anyone is using zero cost accessible materials to post what they are using, posted the name or link (with the class it is used for in parentheses).
Yes - we’d like to hear from everyone, where can we access a shared post like that?

Thanks very much for this thoughtful presentation and for sharing so much.
so we can contact you for the reading lists?
