Iowa History: A Guide to Resource Material.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
The resource guide was designed to assist school administrators, classroom teachers, and librarians in developing and enriching an Iowa history program. In the first section, twelve sources of books, pamphlets, and folders available from various commissions, historical societies, The House of Representatives, Senate, and others are listed. Information on the majority of sources includes a bibliography of publications which provides annotations for many resources, and the purposes, services, and activities of organizations. Section two contains descriptions and listings of four periodicals of Iowa including an index to articles which would be of special interest to the teacher in supplementing courses in Iowa history. Audiovisual resources including films, filmstrips, maps, records, slides, and tapes are enumerated in the third section. Section four deals with the museums of Iowa. Field trips are the focus of the last section which offers general comments, a listing of Iowa historic events, a map of historic sites, and a description of a visit to the state historical building. Some of the materials listed in the guide are free, while a charge is made for others. (SJM)
