Try It - You'll Like It. A "Mixed Bag" of Information on American Culture of the 1920's and 1930's.
Noir, Virginia
Subtitled "A 'Mixed Bag' of Information on American Culture of the 1920's and 1930's," the resource guide was prepared by a librarian to stimulate student interest in studying this period in United States History and to provide the social studies teacher with suggestions for student research. Introductory material encourages students to approach a social studies assignment with a positive attitude, to look beyond the school library for resources, and to browse for ideas. A check list offers a step by step outline of a search procedure. The body of the guide is arranged according to the Dewey Classification system, which is instructional in the use of libraries and encourages browsing. Topic Ideas are listed within each major and sub area, providing more than one hundred suggestions for projects, research reports, and reading areas. An examination of the period through this guide offers an interdisciplinary approach to life and the times: the history, industry and commerce, sociology, creative arts, culture, science and technology. The guide is suitable for both the junior and senior high school level. Short bibliographies are listed with most of the sections. The accompanying Mini Bibliography provides reference to fictional works of and about the period, annotated non-fictional works, and some audiovisual materials. (JMB)
