A Bibliography of Microcomputer Software for Working Draft.
Hodges, James O.
Over 160 microcomputer software programs for elementary and secondary school social studies programs are included in this annotated bibliography. Listed in alphabetical order by the name of the program, the annotation contains a description of the program, appropriate grade level, the name of the system and whether it is available on disk or cassette, the supplier of the system, and the 1982 price. Topics include, for example, alcohol, a study of a developing country, war games, clock (to help students learn to tell time), energy, how to read in content areas, map reading, psychotherapy, the revolutionary war, urban planning, survival skills, transportation, and the U.S. Constitution. The software is designed either as simulation or as practice/drill exercises. Several programs comprise a series of units: Know Yourself, Elementary Social Studies Series, War Game Series, Sensational Simulations, and Social and Economic Situations. The author notes that a limitation to the bibliography is that annotations are derived from supplier catalogs rather than being based on user experience and analysis. (KC)
