This report is intended to be used as a tool to aid educators in selecting the basic instructional materials that are best suited to their high school American history programs and to the teachers and students who will use the materials. This volume contains comprehensive analyses of 11 United States history textbook programs that have come on the market since 1975, plus an introductory matrix on which selected instructional characteristics of these programs have been summarized. The matrix, backed up by the greater detail of the indepth analyses, can be used by selectors to make side-by-side comparisons of the available textbook programs as they pursue the task of narrowing the field of choice to those particular programs that are most likely to fit their needs.
