Two excellent recent books that may have some use in teaching methods:

M. Boone & J. Wood 1992 Computer Applications for Anthropologists. Waveland.

P. Leedy 1993 Practical Research: Planning & Design. 5th ed. Macmillan

There is also a new and improved edition of Bernard's handbook from SAGE.

The Leedy book is not specific to anthropology, but most methods are no
longer discipline specific anyway, and I approve of teaching what works
rather than what the ancestors did.
