I am working on a research paper that looks at the political factors that shape what is written in a high school history text book. I prefer to look at U.S. History Textbooks, U.S. Government textbooks, and/or Economic Textbooks. I’m looking at passages in this books that use stereotypes and biases against groups such as minorities, gender, religion, and race. My goal is to determine what are the messages publishers are putting into history textbooks.
My research so far has led me to the state of Texas and Georgia. I don’t have to focus on these states; however, I need to focus on no more than five different states.
