The Texas History Teacher's Guide to Supplementary Materials and Professional Bibliography.
Texas History Education Advisory Committee, Austin.
Lists of current teaching resources about Texas and a bibliography covering the scope of Texas state history are presented. Up-to-date through March 1976, the guide is intended to help secondary teachers identify materials suitable for teaching required courses on the history of Texas. The first four sections identify audiovisual materials, instructional aids (maps, brochures, display materials), publications, and sources of free or inexpensive materials. Included are filmstrips about the history of ethnic groups in Texas; naps of state political districts; newsletters of state historical associations; and sources of information about livestock, natural resources, and business. Section five is an annotated bibliography of textbooks about Texas which were recommended by scholars in the state's colleges and universities as being most useful to teachers at the secondary level. Almost 30 citations are listed by author, with information about publisher, date, and an annotation about scope and content. Topics include Indians and prehistoric inhabitants of Texas; exploration and early settlement; the Texas revolution; the Mexican War; early statehood; impact of the frontier; ranching and cattle industry; and literature and art. A list of distributors concludes the guide. (AV)
