Abstract

This Professional Project utilized a comparative framework to analyze the effects of textbook-based instruction on student attitude in a ninth-grade geography classroom. The study was conducted over a four-week period with sixteen high school freshmen. The study utilized control and experimental groups: the control groups received textbook-based instruction while the experimental groups participated in non-textbook-based learning. The researcher employed a variety of research methods including surveys, rating scales, student interviews, and classroom observation. The research results indicated that students who participated in non-textbook activities exhibited more positive attitudes towards geography than students who solely studied the textbook and textbook-based materials.
