Nat'l Geographic Has '96 Video Catalog
Over 45 pages strong, the 1996 edition of National Geographic's Educational Videos catalog offers resources for all instructional levels &emdash; pre-K to adult. A special feature of this year's catalog is a notation for, and index to, those videos that correlate to the newly established National Geography Standards. These 18 standards are grouped into six essential elements that students should know about geography at grades K-4, 5-8 and 9-12. Each video comes in a durable plastic case and is accompanied by a Teacher's Guide. A no-obligation 30-day review is offered for any title. Products include videos and videodiscs expressly designed for the school curriculum. General categories are Special Value Videos (pre-K/adult), Developmental Skills/Science (pre-K/9), Science (6- 12/adult), Social Studies (K-9, 6- 12/adult), Really Wild Animals (K-6) and GeoVideoDiscs (4-9). New titles of note are What We Learn About Earth From Space, Heritage of the Black West, Telling the Weather and In the Eyes of the Law.
