Abstract

In this paper, we study the inquisitive tendency in informatics textbooks for middle school students. These textbooks were written in 2009, and have been adopted in 2013 as part of the curriculum. The research is based on six textbooks, which passed qualification tests, and is mainly focused on the section ``composition and movement of information equipment``, which covers contents for the student``s major field of study. Romey analysis was employed to analyze inquisitive tendency in four sections - text, data, activity and evaluation. The results illustrated that some textbooks were organized in a way that exhibited a low level of inquisitive tendency for students, and took an authoritative tone. The section ``activity`` showed the highest level of inquisitive tendency and the ``text`` showed the lowest level. Some sections in the textbooks were found to have zero Romey measures, which stress the need for improvement. Keywords : Inquisitive Tendency, Informatics Textbook, Curriculum, Romey Analysis, Middle School
