It is the purpose of this study, to determine the extent to which the elementary schools of an industrial city in Massachusetts, are utilizing the resources of the community. Although there is much material available as to those community resources that are being utilized and best suited for elementary schools, as well as suggestions and techniques for making the best use of them, little data are available as to a method or plan of determining to what extent the elementary schools are utilizing the resources of their particular community. Through research, it is hoped that a representative list of those community resources that are being utilized by individual teachers or groups of teachers throughout the country can be evolved, and a questionnaire, in the form of a check list, built. In this check list, the community resources will be classified and placed in the following categories: (1) Field trips, (2) Resource Visitors, (3) Interviews with Resource People, (4) Collections and Exhibits, (5) Contacts with Community Agencies, (6) Local Resource Surveys, and (7) Community Service Enterprises.
