This web site presents a method for judging the quality of K-12 teaching materials, both in print and online. It is based on research on effective science teaching and learning and national science education standards. The guide provides a step-by-step procedure for performing a critical review of instructional materials based on learning goals and learning activities. The web site includes examples from textbooks that have received high and low ratings, interactive tutorials, files that can be used as templates for recording evaluation judgments, and links to useful online resources.
