Singleton, Laurel R., Ed.
Analyses of elementary and secondary social studies textbooks, supplementary materials, and teacher resource materials, all published in 1981 and 1982, are presented. The objective is to provide analyses of curriculum materials which will allow K-12 teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, and college methods teachers to select materials appropriate for their students, school, and community. The data book is organized into four major sections. The first section evaluates 5 elementary school textbooks and 11 supplementary materials, including multimedia packages. Section 2 analyzes 19 secondary level textbooks and 15 print, multimedia, and games/simulations supplementary materials. Both sections provide an overview, a section on intended users, rationale and general objectives, content, teaching procedures, and evaluative comments. Section 3 presents brief summaries of the purpose, intended user and uses, and content of 28 teacher resource materials. The final section describes 23 social studies guides or curriculums available through the ERIC system. Indexes exist for author/editor/developer; grade level; publisher; and subject area. (KC)
