Social Studies Curriculum Materials Data Book.
Social Science Education Consortium, Inc., Boulder, CO.
The objective of this manual is to provide analyses of curriculum materials that will allow administrators, curriculum coordinators, methods teachers, and classroom teachers to select materials which are appropriate to their needs and situation. Materials included here reflect the three major categories of innovative social studies curriculum materials which have been produced in the last decade--project materials, textbooks, and games and simulations. The first section of the book contains social studies curriculum project materials developed primarily, though not exclusively, under sponsorship of the Office of Education and the National Science Foundation. The second section provides analysis of five textbooks reflective of new trends in social studies education. Social studies games and simulations comprise the third section. Each of the data sheets are one-to-two page analyses and include the following information: 1) overview of significant features of the materials; 2) description of format and cost; 3) suggested time necessary for implementation; 4) intended user characteristics; 5) rationale and general objectives; 6) description of content; 7) primary teaching and gaming procedures; and, 8) evaluative data, comments, and suggestions for use of the materials. Supplements to the Data Book will appear twice a year, and present data sheets will be revised as necessary. (Author/JLB)
