Chambliss, Marilyn J.
Remedial and Special Education, v15 n6 p348-62 Nov 1994
A technique is presented for evaluating textbooks, using graphic organizers to represent textbook material so that it can be evaluated according to familiarity, interest, and structural coherence. Two sixth-grade social studies textbooks are graphically represented, and suggestions on using the technique are offered to publishers, state adopters, district selectors, and classroom teachers.
