Community Resources for Rural Social Studies Teachers.
McCain, A. Earl; Nelson, Murry
This guide is an inventory of over 100 kinds of readily available community resources for elementary and secondary social studies teachers, especially those in rural areas. The guide is organized in two major sections. The first describes resources relevant to social studies, organized by: the community's physical setting; its historical setting; the economic sector; and the community's political system. The second section presents resources related to the law. The resource types are briefly discussed. Among the many resources are county engineers, county extension agents, civic organizations, churches, old people, elected officials, game wardens, the Sierra Club, local leaders of political parties, forest rangers, and the telephone directory. Completing the guide are a note about the effective use of resources, a list of the resources described in the text, and an annotated list of suggested readings. (SB)
