Seven Reasons Why Textbooks Cannot Make a Curriculum.
Shutes, Robert; Petersen, Sandra
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n565 p11-20 Nov 1994
Textbooks cannot define curriculum. In a curriculum vacuum, textbooks have made content coverage an end in itself, made didactic treatment of fact-level information the standard teaching method, and overwhelmed learners with too much information. Textbook content is indifferent to educational goals, is unselective, ignores instructional pace, rarely reflects learning research, is divorced from real-world usage, cannot reflect local concerns, and overlooks interdisciplinarity.
