Sources of Strength: Women and Culture. Annotated Bibliography.
The bibliography contains annotations of teacher background and student learning materials published through 1976 designed to help secondary school students learn about ways women in various cultures have lived their lives and perceived their choices, and to relate the information to their own lives and choices. It is meant to accompany a teacher's guide for a secondary school course available from the Education Development Center, titled "Sources of Strength: Women and Culture," but can be used separately. Kinds of materials include journals, journal articles, books (fiction and non-fiction), papers, oral histories, anthologies, films, bibliographies, primary sources, plays, videocassettes, videotapes, and filmstrips. The introduction explains the bibliography's organization and selection criteria, and suggests ways for the teacher to localize or expand it. Seven sections cover materials related to women in Africa, women in China, African-American women, Chinese-American women, cross-cultural references, oral history, and personal lives. Each section is divided into subsections entitled teacher background materials, student learning materials, bibliographies, and ways to keep current. Each entry includes publisher information, addresses for those items not in Books in Print, Ed numbers for those in ERIC, and annotations indicating overview, relevant chapters or material, strengths, and weaknesses. For audiovisual materials, length, color, and rental information is given. (CK)
