Big Rock Candy Mountain; Resources for Our Education.
Yanes, Samuel, Ed.; Holdorf, Cia, Ed.
The material reviewed in this edition is loosely divided into categories--process learning, educational environments, classroom materials, home learning, self discovery, and education and consciousness. As in previous editions of the catalog, education is defined in its broadest sense, so that the material reviewed is suitable for many age groups and covers many approaches to learning and many subjects. Not only traditional subjects such as reading and arithmetic are covered, but also such topics as health foods, sex, death, religions of the world, and physical fitness. Although most of the items listed are books and journals, newsletters, catalogs, and lists of free or inexpensive material are also mentioned. Each item is reviewed and sample sections and illustrations from it are reproduced. Although the material presented is aimed toward an innovative approach to education, many of the items would also be useful to those in a traditional educational setting as well. (JY)
