Data Book of Social Studies Materials and Resources, Volume 6.
Singleton, Laurel R., Ed.
This publication contains analyses of elementary and secondary social studies textbooks, supplementary classroom materials, and teacher resource materials. The purpose of the publication is to provide analyses of curriculum materials which will allow K-12 school teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, and college methods teachers to select materials which are appropriate to their students, school, and community. The kind of information provided in each analysis includes purpose, intended users and uses, content, and teaching methods. Some evaluative information is also included. The analyses of curriculum materials are divided into sections by grade level. The first major section of the book describes elementary curriculum materials. Four textbooks or textbook series are analyzed. A "Supplementary/Multimedia Materials" category contains nine analyses. Many of the materials in this category are based on sound filmstrips, audiocassettes, simulation, or a multimedia approach to teaching. The second major section of the book is devoted to secondary (7-12) curriculum. Twenty-seven analyses of textbooks are presented, along with 13 analyses of supplementary materials. The third section includes 23 short analyses of teacher resource materials, most of which provide practical suggestions and ideas for classroom teachers. (Author/RM)
