EDUCATION

Subjects beginning with "EDUCATION / Teaching / Subjects" are intended for works discussing methods of teaching the subject specified or for materials used for teaching that subject. For works discussing methods of studying and/or teaching a topic not covered under "EDUCATION / Teaching / Subjects", use the "Study & Teaching" subheading in the appropriate section (such as ARCHITECTURE). If a topic is represented in both places, use subjects beginning with "EDUCATION / Teaching / Subjects" to cover works discussing teaching through secondary school level and use "Study & Teaching" subheadings for higher level works.

Use subjects in the STUDY AIDS section or in other sections for works on studying for specific tests or for works about specific topics.
