Scientific Illiteracy in Elementary School Science Textbook Programmes.
Elliott, David; And Others
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v19 n1 p73-76 Jan-Feb 1987
Reports results of an investigation of science content of 10 recently published elementary science textbook series. Results show that though textbooks cover a wide range of science content, they do not promote or encourage the development of scientific thinking or attitudes, nor do they engage students in applying cognitive processes that are basic to understanding the content covered.
