An Information Exchange System for Teachers of Government.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
This publication, designed to facilitate input of information about innovative instructional materials and activities for k-12 teachers of government in Iowa, is an outgrowth of a March, 1972, conference for social studies specialists. A primary outcome of the conference was the development of an information retrieval system of locally designed instructional materials and activities in Iowa. Composed of two units, the booklet offers, in Part I, eight examples of local teacher-designed instructional materials and activities. Each example includes the name and address of the contact person; a brief annotation of the project including objectives; special techniques or strategies employed; materials, activities, or equipment used; and evaluation techniques employed. Part II, a major portion of the booklet, provides eleven sources for the preparation of instructional materials and activities for the teaching of government. Information on organizations includes names and addresses of contact persons, descriptions of the programs and services, and available publications from the organization. (SJM)
