Abstract [en]

It has been established that the textbook is given a central role in the English teaching classroom, primarily in grades 4-6 (Skolverket, 2006), and therefore it is of interest to critically examine what kind of approach is suggested in a frequently used language teaching material and study how its content relates to advocated approaches and to current research in the fields of subject pedagogy and textbook studies, which is the aim of this analysis. The English syllabus in the Swedish curriculum advocates a communicative approach to the language classroom. This means that the structural aspects of the language, such as grammatical features, are to be focused only when the communication demands it. However, the result of the analysis of the teaching material Happy (Thelander & Sutcliffe 2010; Thelander, 2011; Thunman, Sutcliffe & Timling 2010), suggests that, contrary to the advocated communicative approach, the teaching material focuses mainly on the structural aspects of the target language, and therefore marginalizes the communicative aspects.
