Textbook Review. Trivial and Noninformative Content of Elementary Social Studies: A Review of Primary Texts in Four Series.
Larkins, A. Guy; And Others
Theory and Research in Social Education, v15 n4 p299-311 Fall 1987
Reports the results of a qualitative content analysis of the primary grade level books of four popular elementary social studies basal textbook series. Maintains that much of the content is redundant, superfluous, vacuous, and needlessly superficial. Recommends, among other things, eliminating textbooks prior to third grade and abandoning the expanding horizons approach to social studies. (JDH)
