Student Perceptions of Textbook Layout and Learnability in Private Schools
Hoshangabadwala, Alefiyah
Journal of Education and Educational Development, v2 n1 p1-16 Jun 2015
This research is an exploratory study that investigates students' perceptions pertinent to textbook layout and organization and their evaluation of the textbook ease of learning. The objective is to find out whether the layout dynamics of school textbooks make any difference in students' interest in studying or subject understanding. 73 students from various private schools of Pakistan's cosmopolitan city Karachi responded to a quantitative survey that gauged their perceptions regarding textbook components such as paper, print, color, and textbook pedagogical features. Findings indicate that students rank print and color above paper quality, and that there is no particular relationship between a book layout and the actual use of textbooks.
