Summary/Abstract: A pilot research was carried out on a sample of teachers in order to determine the frequency of textbook usage within the pre-learning strategy for teaching chemistry and biology in primary and secondary schools. Data were collected through a questionnaire, and processed with descriptive and inferential statistics. Teachers use a textbook with written materials, as well as online resources within the frame of the pre-learning strategy quite rarely, and there is no difference in textbook usage regarding the education level.
