How to Use Recordings. How to Do It Series, Number 8.
Siggelkow, Richard A.
This document lists various ways that a teacher can utilize recordings and transcriptions to achieve interest in the social studies classroom, and suggests some recordings that are particularly valuable as learning tools. Properly employed, these recordings can induce in students a feeling that they are personally acquainted with famous historical personalities and that they have been present during momentous past events, help in the formation of intelligent publication opinion, and increase a pupil's listening skills. Recordings include: "You Are There," and "I Can Hear It Now", each a series of recordings, "Mr. President: From FDR to Eisenhower,""Abraham Lincoln in Illinois," a play by Robert Sherwood, "Rendezvous with Destiny,""These Great Americans," a series of 15 minute biographies on famous Americans, "Who Built America," and "Voices of Freedom." Suggestions for the teacher include several evaluation questions to apply before using a particular recording. Lists are provided of distributors of tape recordings and transcriptions, of state recording libraries, of manufacturers of recording and playback equipment, and of useful books and catalogs.
