Mermelstein, Joanne; Sundet, Paul
An inventory of types of teaching materials relevant for teachers of rural social work includes general suggestions of useful literary works (modern American literature, ethnic literature, locality-specific literature, drama), video-tape productions, government publications, music and architecture. Other generally-indicated possibilities include publications from associations and organizations with particular interests related to rural life; media materials about specific localities (community calendars, newspapers, talk shows); materials produced by students in rural social work classes (audio tapes of interviews with community personages, case records, slides, photographs, statistical compilations); and reports and publications from local social service agencies. More specific suggestions are provided for 8 film libraries (addresses included); 7 films made between 1961 and 1974 (these listings include descriptions and sources); 5 bibliographic compilations done between 1971 and 1976; 1 video-tape library (address provided); 19 relevant periodicals; 10 artists of rural subjects; and 4 miscellaneous listings: a master's thesis on rural radio entertainment (1938), two early collections of rural folklore (1798, 1802), and a farmwife's almanac (1961). The section for each category of material is prefaced with brief remarks on the use of that type of material. (MH)
