McKinney, C. Warren; Jones, H. Jon
Journal of Research and Development in Education, v27 n1 p56-62 Fall 1993
Examined how children's books and textbooks affected fifth graders' knowledge acquisition and attitudes toward social studies and their textbooks. Students received instruction with either a children's book, a textbook, or both. Pretesting and posttesting indicated that students using children's books learned more, possibly because children's books included more content than textbooks. (SM)
