Each of the reference books in this series is a teaching guide which includes an overview of ways to teach each subject,descriptions of reference books and online databases, and lists of teacher resources including ERIC documents. The Keeley Library has directions for locating and ordering ERIC documents. We can help with this, if you wish. Some of the volumes also have biographies of important persons related to the field. These guides also include a list of audiovisual materials, but, since the books have 1988-89 copyright dates, you'll also want to check other sources for computer and video materials.)
