English textbooks and the syllabus : A study of how teaching materials relate to the syllabus for grades 4-6. (English)
The aim of this study is to investigate if textbooks and workbooks produced for teaching English to Swedish students in grades 4-6 fulfil the demands set by the curriculum. Furthermore, it investigates if the teaching materials need to be complemented by other media. An analysis has been made of three teaching materials. The analysis is based on national and European policy documents and current language research. The study also investigates how much teachers use textbooks when teaching English, what kind of homework they give that relates to the books and what media they complement with. The study found that all the teaching materials that were analysed follow the curriculum, but that not all areas of communicative skills were treated equally. The survey of teacher’s use of teaching materials found that the use of teaching materials was quite traditional and that most teachers complement with other forms of media.
