SRSS in the Homestretch.
Angell, Robert C.
This is a brief review of the materials created by the Sociological Resources for Social Studies Project (SRSS) and published by Allyn and Bacon. Eleven of twenty-nine short units in "Episodes in Social Inquiry Series" are available or in press. This entire series should be completed by the end of 1971. All of the episodes emphasize the inquiry mode, and include inductive data analysis exercises. They are being used in a variety of social studies courses: Problems of Democracy, Social Problems, American History, Political Science, and Economics. "Inquiries in Sociology," an inquiry-oriented, one-semester course for eleventh and twelfth grades, will be published in the fall of 1971. A paperback series of readings on broad sociological topics which can be used as background for class work in a variety of social studies courses has been developed. Five of these books are now being published, and the sixth and seventh will be available in late 1971. In addition, a teacher training film for institutes and workshops, "Sociological Investigation in the Social Studies Class," is available for rental from the Audio-Visual Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan. SO 000 245, SO 000 246, and SO 000 247 are related documents. (SBE)
