The 4th grade reader textbook, currently in use in the Greek Elementary Schools, was analyzed in order to determine its relevance and appeal to the students. The analysis performed included the general structure and appearance of the book, the stories and illustrations, the practice exercises and the language used. The findings of the research revealed that the book had little relevance to modern Greek society and to the experiences of students belonging to non-dominant racial/ethnic, gender and social groups. The conclusions of the research were used as a foundation for the proposal of guidelines regarding the development of a language curriculum that could satisfy current and future educational needs in the increasingly multicultural Greek society.
