Selection of Textbooks or Readings for Your Course
Contribution to Books
In the design and implementation of teaching for a college course, it is important to consider which textbook or readings to use. In this chapter, I first summarize general advice from other authors about textbook selection. Next, I summarize the research on factors affecting textbook selection. Finally, I discuss the possibility of using course readings.
