Selection of Instructional Materials; A Model Policy and Rules.
Dornfeld, Jean, Ed.
The Iowa State Department of Public Instruction has developed an instructional materials selection policy and procedures to help achieve appropriate assignment of selection responsibility and quality selection while guarding against unwarranted censorship of materials. The model emphasized the ongoing nature of media selection, involving assignment of responsibility of selection and continued evaluation by school staff members. Intended to provide assistance to schools in developing their own selection policies and procedures, the model delineates: (1) responsibility of selection of materials; (2) criteria for selection of materials; (3) procedures for selection of media and text materials; (4) procedures for objections by the community; and (5) a sample form for reevaluation of printed or audiovisual material. Sources of publications and associations concerned with intellectual freedom are appended. (HB)
