Selective Bibliography in United States History Resources.
Ramos, June E.; Crevling, Barbara
The selective bibliography identifies United States history materials for grades 7 through 12. It has been compiled to give teachers a representative sample of texts and supplementary materials, most of which have been published since 1975. Section one contains references to 16 basal curriculum materials. Information is given on title, author, publisher, publication date, grade level, Fry reading level, costs, specific subject area, and a paragraph-length annotation. Some of the materials stress Black history, ethnic studies, and the Bicentennial. Section two presents supplementary student materials: 12 print materials, nine audiovisual materials, and 17 games and simulations. Information similar to that in section one is given for each entry. Special topics include minority groups, immigrants, women's rights, and values. Five teacher resources described in section three stress inquiry learning, use of newspapers, and how to make history relevant to the present. Seven ERIC documents in section four describe teaching methods and exemplary programs, followed by a listing in section five of four organizations which conduct research and publish materials related to U.S. history.
