Evaluation of Materials for Reading: Criteria for Evaluating.
Wardeberg, Helen L.
The evaluation of instructional material to be selected for the school situation is discussed. Changing values of present day society are noted, and three general criteria are suggested for selection of materials. (1) The economics of the matter may be least important in the long run. It is not what we protect students from but what we can expose them to within the resources we have that is important. (2) Whatever we put into the environment of the readers should be of the best quality that can be identified. (3) Whatever is selected should be in the humane dimension, contributing to the search for life significance that is part of the human soul. (WB)
