How Does the Textbook Contribute to Learning in a Middle School Science Class?
Driscoll, Marcy P.; And Others
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v19 n1 p79-100 Jan 1994
How the teacher and students used the textbook in an eighth-grade science class (18 students) was studied through questionnaires, interviews, and self-report checks of book use. Results suggest the textbook served primarily as a dictionary and that it employed few instructional strategies to support higher level objectives. Implications for the role of textbooks in instruction are considered. (SLD)
