Why Students Aren't Learning Very Much from Textbooks.
Tyson, Harriet; Woodward, Arthur
Educational Leadership, v47 n3 p14-17 Nov 1989
Although textbooks structure from 75 to 90 percent of classroom instruction, they are often criticized for contributing to American students' appalling ignorance and for being compendia of inadequately treated topics. This article explores deficiencies in science, social studies, and history and offers remedial actions. The key is a careful selection process. Includes 20 references. (MLH)
