Micronesian Texts for the K-12 Reader. A Selection Guide.
Carriveau, Kenneth L., Jr., Comp.; Cunningham, Lawrence J., Comp.
Micronesia is an ethno-geographical grouping of over 2000 islands spread out over 7,000,000 square kilometers of the Pacific Ocean and includes the Republic of Kiribati, the Republic of Nauru, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Republic of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam, an unincorporated U.S. territory. Thousands of people call these islands home, and numerous ethnic groups are represented in the region's demographic profile. This annotated bibliography of over 300 books about Micronesian subjects, including Pacific region texts in which the Micronesian element constitutes a significant portion of the narrative, is intended to assist teachers, parents, school librarians, public librarians, and students identify and select appropriate reading materials for their classroom use. What sets this bibliography apart from others is that: (1) the list is limited only to those items still in print, or listed in on-demand reprint catalogs, and easily acquired from the publisher or book vendors; and (2) all of the texts discussed deal exclusively, or at least extensively, with Micronesian topics. The bibliography is divided into the following sections: "Introduction"; "Micronesian Texts for the K-12 Reader Bibliography"; "Subject Index"; "Author Index"; "Publisher Index and Directory"; and "About the Compilers."
