Ben-Peretz, Miriam; Tamir, Pinchas
Using a Curriculum Characteristics Inventory questionnaire, this study identifies teacher concerns and interests about curriculum materials and discloses teachers' attitudes about the nature and characteristics of curriculum materials. Teachers rated six characteristics in the following order of priority: 1) relevance of subject matter, 2) textbook layout and readability, 3) adaptability of instructional materials to student needs, 4) instructional efficiency, 5) practical usability, and 6) adaptability to teacher innovation. Complete results of the questionnaire are presented in tabular form. (JD)
