Heritage Education Resource Guide. Preliminary Edition.
Hunter, Kathleen, Ed.
Heritage education is defined as teaching and learning about U.S. history and culture. It is an interdisciplinary approach to education that encompasses subjects like architecture, art, community planning, social history, politics, conservation, and transportation. This guide is intended to help persons identify information about heritage education programs and materials. Listing over 300 resources, the information highlights are available through museums, historic sites, national, state, city, and town organizations, as well as consultants and authors. The guide can be used to network among current practitioners in heritage education. It also can introduce educators from many disciplines to the values and principles of heritage education and can direct them to the various kinds of programs and educational materials. (DB)
