Data Book of Social Studies Materials and Resources. Volume 10.
Cook, Kay K., Ed.
Analyses of elementary and secondary social studies textbooks, supplementary materials, and teacher resource materials, all published in 1983, 1984, and 1985, are presented. The objective is to provide analyses of curriculum materials that 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 major section contains analyses of elementary (K-6) social studies materials, including three new basal programs. Twenty supplementary materials are also briefly described. The second major section is devoted to secondary (7-12) curriculum materials. Twenty new analyses of basic textbooks are presented, along with nine shorter analyses of revised editions. The secondary curriculum materials section concludes with 24 brief descriptions of supplementary materials. The third section of the "Data Book" includes 26 short analyses of teacher resource materials. The fourth and concluding section contains descriptions of curriculum guides and units available through the ERIC system. Indexes are provided for author/editor, grade level, publishers, and subject area. Publishers' addresses are provided. (RM)
