Guide to Choosing a Quality Textbook

By Samuel Adebara on June 23rd, 2021

In the 21st century, textbooks have gained a broader significance beyond their use as a teaching guide. Good textbooks help students learn how to learn, inspire positive values and attitudes, and a commitment to lifelong learning.
In choosing a textbook, it is important to consider noteworthy generic qualities such as contents, learning and teaching development, structure and organization, textbook layout and technical and functional significance.

Here are some values you should consider in choosing a quality textbook:

  • Textbooks should align and conform with the objectives and components of the curriculum. Good textbooks should reflect the aims, content, learning objective, and assessment of the curriculum.
  • Focused on the development of practical skills for equipping students with skills and knowledge to cope with the challenges of the future.
  • Good textbooks should emphasize learning beyond the classroom.
  • Textbooks should be interactive, contain lessons to inspire the interest of students, and actively engage their minds in the learning process.
  • Quality of Language. Language used in textbooks must be coherent, and accessible to students in order to facilitate independent reading and engage with lessons on their own.
  • Textbook Layout. Good textbooks should be well organized, space and margin utilised properly, contain illustrations that enhance learning, and designed in a way that the materials and contents succinctly and clearly describe the aims and objectives of the lessons.
  • Data and information used in the textbook must be accurate and relevant.
