Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Branch.
This annotated catalog of resources is designed to help elementary school teachers in Alberta, Canada select resources to be used in teaching the province's social studies program. The social studies program is organized around a focus area and three topics for each grade. The focus areas are: Grade 1, Me and Others; Grade 2, People Today; Grade 3, Communities; Grade 4, Alberta; Grade 5, Canada; and Grade 6, Meeting Human Needs. Resources are grouped in two categories: Basic and Support (formerly called Recommended and Supplementary). Basic resources are those authorized as the most appropriate for addressing the majority of learner expectations; support resources are those authorized to assist in addressing some learner expectations of a course, a course component, or across grades. Listed resources include print, computer courseware, kits, maps, atlases, globes, video cassettes, and teaching resources. Appendices identify lists of teaching resources produced by Alberta Education, additional teaching resources, suppliers, regional offices of education, and media centers. A format index, a series index, and a title index are also included. (DB)
