New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Occupational and Continuing Education.
A checklist of criteria for evaluating textbooks in occupational education is presented, providing a rapid and effective way for instructors to assess occupational textbooks. The checklist encourages occupational education instructors and administrators to look at the qualities of textbooks that go beyond the subject content and readability levels of a textbook. The checklist suggests criteria that are needed for student comprehension of any text regardless of the occupation being taught. The appendices offer ways to determine what textbooks are available for use in occupational education content area courses and sample checklists and responses. (PN)
