Filmstrips for Area Studies: A Critical Evaluation of K-12 Learning Materials. Occasional Paper No. 7.
Lipsky, William; And Others
This publication contains critical analyses of filmstrips dealing with five major world areas: Russia and East Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Near East. The filmstrips are for use in elementary and secondary classrooms. One hundred and fifty filmstrips produced between 1970 and the present and available from commercial publishers and distributors were chosen for inclusion. Each filmstrip was reviewed by at least two persons, one with expertise in the content area and one with expertise in curriculum and instruction. The evaluations are organized by area under study and by grade level within each area. Bibliographical data provided for each entry includes title of filmstrip, publisher, publication date, grade level, and filmstrip components. The evaluation contains a description of the filmstrip's subject matter and major themes, a critical evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the filmstrip, and a discussion of the Teacher's Guide. The evaluation instrument utilized is included. This publication is the second stage of the Multicultural Education Project of the UCLA Curriculum Inquiry Center which was established to further multicultural studies in the K-12 area. In the first stage of the project, center staff developed annotated bibliographies of print and nonprint learning materials dealing with the five major world areas. (Author/RM)
