L.I.S.T.: Local Information Sources for Teachers - A Community Resource Guide for Consumer and Home Economics Education.
Burk, Marilyn
This guide for teachers of consumer and home economics education suggests agencies, groups, and organizations to be considered when exploring the resource possibilities which exist within a specific community. The format is that of a personal directory to be filled in with the telephone number, address, and contact person for each resource listed. Directory headings include the following: (1) police and fire departments; (2) banks; (3) post office; (4) utilities (gas, water, electricity); (5) telephone company; (6) churches, temples, clergy; (7) local businesses; (8) clubs, associations, trade and professional organizations; (9) local schools and colleges; (10) newspapers; (11) hospitals; (12) local government; (13) cooperative extension; and (14) libraries. Ideas for possible programs, speakers, and materials are given for each resource listed. To help insure a successful use of local information sources, checklists for using speakers, audiovisual materials, and field trips are provided. A three-page subject index concludes this directory.
