This month in our Secondary schools, administrators are on us to choose the best textbook for next year. Some will choose individually, in Subject teams or just whichever everybody is going to us.
There are a lot of different things to consider un terms of a good textbook.
Some teachers do it by instinct, recommendation or the thickness of the textbook.
Once I attended to a lecture of an education researcher who presented a criteria questionnaire with 50 or more questions. That was a lot…. so…
I decided to make and share my own questionnarie of textbook criteria. I think those 10 questions are enough to think what we need or want of a textbook.
