Data Book of Social Studies Materials and Resources. Volume 9.
Singleton, Laurel R., Ed.
Analyses of elementary and secondary social studies textbooks, supplementary materials, and teacher resource materials, all published in 1982 and 1983, are presented. The objective is to provide a review of curriculum materials which will allow K-12 teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, and college methods teachers to select appropriate materials for their students, school, and community. The data book is organized into five main sections. The first section evaluates seven elementary school textbooks and learning packages and updates reviews of three texts revised in 1982 and 1983. The second section analyzes 33 secondary-level texts and textbook sets and updates reviews of 16 revised texts. Each analysis in the two sections provides an overview, a section on intended users, rationale and general objectives, content, teachers' procedures, and evaluative comments. The third section presents brief summaries of the purpose, intended user and uses, and content of 31 teacher resources, including books, journals, and newsletters. The fourth section describes 21 social studies guides or curricula available through the ERIC system. The final section, a reinstituted feature in the data book, lists new supplementary materials. Categorized by topic, the list includes title, publisher, date, grade level, type of material, price, and content focus. Indexes are provided for author/editor/developer, grade level, publisher, and subject area. The book concludes with a list of cited publishers' addresses. (LP)
