Handbook of Evaluated Materials for Secondary Social Studies.
Mount Diablo Unified School District, Concord, CA.; Diablo Valley Education Project, Orinda, CA.
The handbook contains teacher evaluations of secondary social studies materials used in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD), Orinda, California. The Materials Testing Program of MDUSD is an effort to involve secondary teachers in the process of evaluating social studies materials in certain concept areas: conflict, social change, man's interdependence, power and authority, values, institutions, and self identity. Materials, prescreened first by the Diablo Valley Education Project and then by teachers, were field tested in classrooms. The evaluations on units, games, and multi-media which comprise the major portion of the handbook are edited versions drawn from the original teacher evaluations. Resources through which more information on materials can be obtained are listed. This publication has also been edited into 6 separate guides, any one of which is free; more than one costs $.25. The individual titles are Change, Conflict, Identity, Interdependence, Power and Authority, and Values, all are subtitled Guides to Selected Curriculum Materials on Interdependence, Conflict, and Change: Teacher Comments on Classroom Use and Implementation.
