THE INDEXES

The seven indexes that follow are designed to allow easy access to the information, materials, and organizations annotated in this guide. For example, the curriculum annotations in chapters 1 through 4 are indexed by title, author/series, and topic. In addition, indexes on grade level and curriculum area by grade level enable readers to find materials appropriate to specific curriculum needs.

The titles of the indexes and their general focus and coverage are as follows:

  • The Title Index covers curriculum and other book and periodical titles annotated in chapters 1-4 and 6-8.

  • The Index of Names (Authors, Series, Curriculum Projects) covers chapters 1-8.

  • The Index of Topics in Curriculum Materials covers chapters 1-4, giving major topics of each module and activity book.

  • The Index of Grade Levels of Curriculum Materials by Scientific Area covers chapters 1-4.

  • The Index of Scientific Areas of Curriculum Materials by Grade Level covers chapters 1-4.

  • The Subject Index covers the content of annotations in chapters 6-8 (Teacher's References) as well as information on the structure and development of the guide presented in the Introduction, Overviews, and appendixes.

  • The Index of Ancillary Resources (Places to Visit/Organizations) covers chapters 9-10.

Throughout the indexes, the locator numbers in italic refer to page numbers. All other references are to entry numbers.
