Catalog of State Basic Skills Products.
CEMREL, Inc., St. Louis, MO.
Listed in this catalog are 122 product descriptions from 34 states identified by state coordinators of basic skills instruction as the best developed in their states. Products include books, pamphlets, videotapes, booklets, checklists, guides, handbooks, anthologies, and computer programs. Each product was developed to improve the management, the teaching, or the learning of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and mathematics. Each product meets four criteria: It was developed within the past 5 years, unless it was an earlier product that had been consistently in demand; it is an original work; it makes a contribution to the field; and it is available to educators throughout the country. The descriptions are listed alphabetically by states. They include a one or two word summary of the major focus of the product, its title, the audience for whom it was intended, a description of how it has been used in the state, a 150-to-200 word abstract on it, a list of key word descriptors, and information on how to obtain a copy of the product. Following the product descriptions are three indexes. The state index is an alphabetical list of the states and the titles of their products. The major focus index is an alphabetical list of the words listed as the focus of the product. The rotated descriptor index is a list of all the terms used as product descriptors with each word in the descriptor entered separately in alphabetical order. (HOD)
