One of the purposes of this study was to find if the use of resource persons is a valuable and sound method of teaching. Another purpose was to find the values of such teaching to the child, to the teacher and to the parent. Is it a justifiable technique for developing the purposes and reaching the goals of a well planned social studies program? Another purpose was to expose the problems involved in the use of this method and to try to solve at least some of them.
