Guidelines for the Evaluation and Selection of Textbooks in the Treatment of Minorities (Especially in Social Studies).
New Mexico State Dept. of Education, Santa Fe.
This document, part of which is in checklist form, sets forth a set of criteria for analyzing materials which are relevant for the education of minority groups. The checklist itself consists of 29 items, each of which must be judged on a scale ranging from "superior" to "not pertinent." Some sample evaluation questions are: (does the book) 1) include materials on minorities where relevant?; 2) reflect respect for personal and cultural differences and the worth and importance of the individual?; 3) give attention to holidays, festivals, religious observances of various minority groups without stereotyping? A list of six references is given. (OPH)
