Data Book of Social Studies Materials and Resources. Volume 11.
Williams, Ann M., Ed.
Analyses of elementary and secondary social studies textbooks, supplementary materials, and teacher resource materials, all published in 1984 and 1985, are presented. The objective is to provide a review of curriculum materials which will allow K-12 teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, and college methods teachers to select appropriate materials for their students, school, and community. Analyses of curriculum materials are divided into sections by grade-level clusters. Thus, the first major section contains analyses of elementary (K-6) social studies materials. The second major section of the book is devoted to secondary (7-12) curriculum materials; 18 new analyses of basal programs are presented with 3 shorter analyses of revised editions. The secondary curriculum materials section concludes with 39 brief descriptions of supplementary materials. These supplementary items include video cassettes, filmstrips, and audio cassettes. Materials appropriate for both elementary and secondary students appear in the elementary section and are cross-referenced in the secondary section. The third section includes 21 short analyses of teacher resource materials. Twenty-four social studies curriculum guides or units, identified through the ERIC system, are described in the fourth section. Indexes are provided for author/editor/developer; grade level; publisher; and subject area. A list of publishers' addresses concludes the publication. (LH)
