Readings for Teachers of United States History and Government.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
An annotated list of readings is suggested for high school teachers of U.S. history and geography at grade 11 and for teachers of courses in the principles of democracy at grade 12. The list was designed for use in California where the 11th grade curriculum emphasizes 20th century U.S. history and the 12th grade concentrates on the institution of U.S. government and the comparison of different styles of government in the world today. Although the bibliography was prepared for use by California teachers, teachers from around the United States and other parts of the world might find it a useful resource. Among principles of selection for the list were: each book must be germane to the subject at hand; each must deal with a significant aspect of the subject; and each must be interesting and readable. The reading list has six sections: historical fiction, biography and autobiography, contemporary public affairs, books about education, U.S. history, and European and world history. (DB)
