Developed by a graduate seminar class, this guide is intended to help teachers use museums to integrate the arts into the elementary social studies curriculum. Although many of the resources included pertain specifically to Pennsylvania, the guide can serve as a model for educators in other states. Many different resources are provided. There is an annotated listing of museums around Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. A chart describes how to relate museum visits to classroom curricula by outlining the concepts to be taught and the teaching methods. Learning activities are suggested, answers to questions often asked by teachers of museum directors are provided, and tips for field trips are included. An essay explores the creative process and its implications for individual achievement. In addition, lists are provided of the 1983 regional membership of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, cultural organizations in Pennsylvania, primary source materials available at and publications of Stroud Mansion, publications available at Pocono Indian Museum, and films and video cassettes. A bibliography concludes the guide. (RM)
