A Handbook of Science Fiction for Teachers
by Elizabeth Calkins and Barry McGhan
Pflaum/Standard, Dayton, OH. 1972. Booklet. 103 pages. (5¼ X 8). Foreword by Daniel F. Galouye. The authors present a series of ideas on teaching science fiction in schools. The Puppet Masters and The Space Merchants are suggested as books that could be used for class papers. The authors provide small listings of book dealers, book publishers, professional magazines, etc. The longest section covers a listing of recommended novels. It is alphabetical by author and then by title. This is a good reading list of titles from the pre 1970s period. Overall, the material is out-of-date.
