Evaluative Criteria for High School Textbooks in Journalism and Mass Media.
Campbell, Laurence R.
The purpose of this study was to develop criteria for high school textbooks in journalism and mass media. The study discusses the procedure used in evaluating textbooks; the role of textbooks in journalism and mass media courses; a general background of these courses; a review of objectives concerning the student journalist, the teenage writer, the teenage fact-finder, the teenage citizen, the teenage careerist, and the teenage consumer; and current objectives in journalism and mass media courses, the content of these courses and methods used in teaching them, and an analysis of various textbooks used in these courses. It was concluded that three textbooks, each judged to be of almost equal merit, most nearly met the established criteria. Other textbooks examined more nearly met the needs of certain courses, and all of the textbooks evaluated were recognized as worthwhile. (Author/DI)
