15 Year Review - Appendix F
(1) Out-of-print curricula may be available for loan from individual congregations or district libraries. A plan for making out-of-print curricula available on line is to begin with the senior high spirituality curriculum On The Path. The UUA could obtain and grant permission to copy out-of-print materials when a decision has been made not to re-publish, or could make copies available itself through the UUA Bookstore at cost. For example, In Our Hands: A Peace and Social Justice Program, is currently available for Adults, Grades 1-3, Grades 4-6, and Senior High, while the Junior High segment is out-of-print. Given that there are no materials that come with this curriculum other than those contained in a 100-page book, it could be kept in print with a copier.
Some Out-of-Print or Otherwise Unlisted Resources:
Carry the Flame, Lori Berger McDermott (First Religious Society, Carlisle, MA 1993). A "self-paced, developmentally appropriate, and interactive curriculum developed in three levels" based on the seven principles of the UUA, not described in either Curriculum Mapping or The UUA Bookstore Catalog.
