Teachers and Textbooks: Materials Use in Four Fourth-Grade Classrooms.
Sosniak, Lauren A.; Stodolsky, Susan S.
Elementary School Journal, v93 n3 p249-75 Jan 1993
Studied the role of textbooks in elementary education. Found that the influence of textbooks on teachers' thinking and on classroom instruction was somewhat less than the literature indicates. Patterns of textbook use were not consistent across academic subjects. Conditions of elementary education encourage selective and variable textbook use. (BB)
