American History Booklist for High Schools: A Selection for Supplementary Reading.
Brown, Ralph, Ed.; Brown, Marian, Ed.
The Council has prepared this selected reading list of over 2,000 references to assist the classroom teacher in his efforts to evaluate and to select those books most appropriate to supplement the American History program. The essential bibliographic data for each of the books is noted excluding publishing date and price. The list consists of documents in print at the time of compilation. The first chapter suggests books that would constitute a valuable reference nucleus for any senior or junior high school library. Chapter 2 includes collections of sources and volumes of readings. The next 15 chapters are annotated entries with the titles grouped around chronological-topical headings. Each book has been classified as to the nature of content (source material, non-fiction, biography, or fiction), reading level (adult, adolescent, slow reader), type of binding, are listed alphabetically by author, and are numbered consecutively. A similar document is the World Civilization Booklist by Dr. Alice Spieseke (National Council for the Social Studies, Revised 1968). (SBE)
