This annotated bibliography, one of four separate resources in the "Teach ERIC Resource Series," cites materials dealing with United States history for use at the elementary and secondary levels. All materials listed are available through the ERIC system and in journal articles. The purpose of the series is to help familiarize teachers with the ERIC system and what it can do for them. The bibliography references classroom activities, units of study, simulation games, lists of resource materials, curriculum guides, and teaching guides. Many of the resources focus on specialized topics. For example, one journal article describes how colonial classroom committees can recreate an era of taxes, tyranny, and military tangles; another article contains three moral dilemmas designed to teach elementary students about the values conflicts in the Revolutionary War; and a third article provides examples of how oral history can be used in the secondary classroom. Most of the materials are suitable for integration, at the teacher's discretion, into a basic comprehensive course. The bibliography is organized into two major parts: the first part cites journal articles; the second part lists ERIC documents. Within each part, the citations are arranged, first, by grade-level groups (K-6, 7-12, K-12) and then by ERIC accession number. The largest sections are devoted to materials for grades 7-12. Information about ordering or obtaining access to both journal articles and other resources is provided in a brief introduction to each part. (Author/RM)
