Instructional Materials Selection Criteria Recommended for Use by All School Personnel Responsible for the Selection of Instructional Materials; Selection of Instructional Materials for Use in Schools: A Handbook; Selected Aids for Schools: An Annotated Bibliography for Selection of Instructional Materials.
Piper, Robert W., Comp.
These three documents contain information to aid in selection of instructional materials for schools. The first begins with a list of 17 instructional materials selection criteria, bibliographic format and user interest criteria, criteria for non-fiction and fiction materials, and a nonprint review form. The second document, a handbook for instructional materials selection, is designed to assist school divisions in developing and implementing a written policy for the acquisition of instructional materials. This handbook contains a selection policy checklist, a rationale for the adoption of a written selection policy, suggested components of a selection policy, sample of components of existing policy statements, guidelines for implementing a selection policy, and an annotated bibliography of sources for use in developing selection procedures and sets of criteria for selection of print and non-print instructional materials. The third document is an annotated bibliography divided into two major sections. Section A includes the "finding aids" which identify what is available, giving bibliographic information without evaluating materials. Section B includes some 65 major evaluative tools. Many are special subject bibliographies in specific subject areas, and 33 are Canadian lists. (Author/LMM)
