Observations on the Use of Textbooks in the Teaching of Principles of Economics.
Boskin, Michael J.
Journal of Economic Education, v19 n2 p157-64 Spr 1988
Discusses the role of the textbook in the principles of economics course. Recognizing that textbooks are only one source of input for students, and that they substitute for lectures to a limited extent, Boskin recommends that texts should stress the basics and serve as a reference source to support classroom instruction.
