The Data Book contains descriptive analyses of new social studies materials for kindergarten through grade 12, teacher resource materials, ERIC abstracts of curriculum guides, and a listing of all social studies materials published in 1978. It is intended to help teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, and college methods professors in selecting appropriate materials on the basis of grade level, discipline, underlying philosophy, goals, strategies, structure, content, innovativeness, and merit. There are four major sections in the book. Section one includes 60 two-page analyses of social studies materials arranged in categories of textbooks, supplementary and non-print materials, and games and simulations. Section two includes 20 short analyses of teacher resource materials. Each analysis summarizes the purpose, intended uses and users, and contents of each resource book. Section three provides abstracts of 20 social studies curriculum guides identified through the ERIC system. Section four contains a listing of 336 social studies materials published in 1978 and is organized by subject area. Each section is indexed in the back of the book by author/editor, developer, grade level, publisher/institution, and subject area. (Author/AV)
