 Abstract
In this paper, we examined informatics textbooks for middle school students in accordance with 2009 revised curriculum through conducting both content analysis and surveys. The content analysis was analyzed the composition and contents of textbooks. Survey questionnaires were based on the authorization criteria and selection standards of informatics textbooks. The content analysis demonstrated that there were discrepancies among textbooks in areas such as the total number of pages, related material, the number of core concepts introduced in each chapter, and the application of software. The survey results showed that two sections - `Expression and Modification` and `Text` exhibited the most positive results, and the `Creativity` section the least. Using the findings above, we present alternative ways to improve qualities of these textbooks.
