Instructional Materials Selection Guide: Social Science.
Gentry, Adrian, Ed.
The 1977 document lists and describes social science instructional materials for grades K-8 selected by the California State Board of Education, assisted by the Curriculum Development and Supplemental Materials Commission and other advisory groups. Its objective is to aid school districts in selecting materials best suited to their own programs and pupils, by roughly classifying materials and describing their chief characteristics and approaches. It is designed to be used as a preface to personal examination of the materials considered. Materials described include texts, teaching guides, maps, multimedia kits, workbooks, and atlases. The guide is presented in three parts. Part I, the index, lists items on a chart designed to provide quick classification, enabling the user to identify desired materials. Information given includes publisher, title, kind of material, whether it is basic or supportive, publisher and state matrix grade levels, instructional emphasis, special conditions or comments, and page number referring to the guide. Part II is the guide itself, covering grades K-6 and 7-8. Each entry includes publisher, title, author, date, physical description and overview, adoption termination date, components, grade levels, price, a general description, goals and objectives, organization, methodology, provisions for student evaluation, teachers guide/edition, implementation requirements, and related materials. Part III lists instructional materials display centers in California where district selection committees may personally review the materials as recommended. (CK)
