A Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis of a Set of Reading Textbooks Used in Grades 1-6 to Determine the Degree of Social Realism.
Rainey, Dorothy Lavern
A set of textbooks used in grades one through six was analyzed to determine the degree of social realism in the books. Results indicated that the selected set of textbooks was socially realistic, reflecting the diversity of cultures that exists in the United States. The texts contained stories that pictured whites, blacks, and other minorities in segregated and integrated groupings; a variety of environmental settings was used throughout the series; and the human characteristics in the illustrations were, for the most part, readily identifiable.
