Abstract

This study aims to critically analyze science textbooks to refine and improve the content and images of science textbooks. The goal of this research is to use document analysis to assess the reliability produced approximately in textbooks. Selected science textbooks are major instructional resources from which students receive information. The study follows a mixed method approach with a more qualitative part. The systematic comprehension and categorizations of images, illustrations, drawings, pictures and texts are required for a comprehensive study of graphic interpretations. In contemporary science textbooks, graphic illustrations play a significant role in grasping key concepts. This research finds that these resources and strategies of visual image text interpretation of these perspectives, photographs, fine-art drawings, illustrations, and posters have become fundamental teaching tools in science books. Further studies should be conducted on different books and different narratological aspects.
