Guide to Reading for Social Studies Teachers. Bulletin 46.
McLendon, Jonathon C., Ed.
This major reference tool aims to identify for social studies teachers the best available reading materials selected from the overwhelming outpouring of writings of the 1960's and early 1970's. Organized by sections and topics of the sort that social studies educators are likely to explore, the book's thirty one chapter focus on (1) The Social Sciences, (2) Societal Problems and Issues, (3) Curriculum, Methods, and Media, and (4) Perspectives on Human Development. Under these four sections, chapters written by specialists in their area of the social sciences discuss major writings on the disciplines and on interrelated topics (poverty, drugs, mass communication, social values, instruction, institutions, society, culture, to name a few). The appendix includes an index of authors (arranged under broad subject headings) whose books are cited and a directory of publishers, with addresses. This review of the literature is intended for educators who want the best of recent scholarship and lucid, fresh presentations of ideas: teachers aiming to improve curriculum and instruction; curriculum workers and consultants tackling school problems; college and university educators improving programs and working with preservice and inservice teachers; librarians seeking resource guides; and those wanting simply to know more.
