State Adopted Textbooks for Oregon Schools, 1973-79. Circular No. 2: Homemaking, Music, and Social Studies.
Oregon State Board of Education, Salem.
The circular presents a list of textbooks officially adopted for use in Oregon public schools for the period 1973-9 in homemaking, music, and social studies. Section I provides suggestions to school administrators on textbook selection. Topics discussed include selecting a variety of partial sets of texts, negotiating with publishers, utilizing older texts, interpreting price lists, and encouraging autonomy for local selection practices. Discussion of the procedure for seeking approval of independent textbook adoptions is followed by instruction on how to review challenged instructional material and a sample form requesting reconsideration of instructional materials. The bulk of the report, presented in sections II, III, and IV, lists textbooks by grade level and by specific subject area within the fields of homemaking, music, and social studies. For each entry are listed title, grade, low or high level, subject, title, author, copyright, publisher, wholesale and retail price information. Additional information such as availability and cost of a teacher's edition or guide is provided where applicable. A directory of textbook representatives for all materials in the circular is included. (Author/DB)
