Suggestions are offered in this bulletin to provide insight and encouragement to elementary and secondary social studies school teachers for using a wide variety of instructional materials, including multiple books, in their classrooms. The rationale for using multiple books is introduced. Tips for teachers are provided on types of materials, and on how to select, obtain, and use multiple reading materials. A major portion of the bulletin centers on questions that reachers most often ask about using multiple reading materials, along with answers from accepted research and present trends. The topics of such questions focus on the reading difficulty of multiple books, the use of one or more basic textbooks, having all pupils read about one question at the same time, small group study, use of study guides, discrepancies in facts, oral reading, time devoted to reading varied materials, home study, and evaluation.
