New Studies in Education: Health Material in Science Textbooks


by Lois Meier - 1927

IN the well-known definition of objectives of secondary education given in Cardinal Principles of Secondary Education (U.S. Bureau of Education Bui. 35, 1918) first place was given to the Health Objective.1 In the report of the Committee on Reorganization of Science in Secondary Schools it is stated of this objective that it "finds realization chiefly through science and civics." The significance which advocates of science teaching have attached to health has made it seem important to determine the extent to which it has been recognized in instructional materials prepared for use in science classes in secondary schools. The pamphlet under review reports the percentage of the print and the illustrations in textbooks and laboratory manuals for general science, biology, physics and chemistry which is devoted to topics of health.
