Primers As Socializing Agents in American and Finnish Schools.
Hyona, Jukka; And Others
Comparative Education Review, v39 n3 p280-98 Aug 1995
Content analysis of 12 Finnish and 18 American primers for grades 3 through 6 published primarily during the 1980s examined story type, plot setting, protagonist's characteristics, dramatic tasks, portrayals of family structure and parental responsibility, and extrafamilial peer and adult relationships. Results suggest that a nation's cultural ethos vigorously penetrates the content of school primers, constituting a hidden curriculum. (SV)
