Zorba, Mehmet Galip; Arikan, Arda
Online Submission, TOJRAS: The Online Journal of Recreation and Sport v1 n1 p39-45 Jan 2012
Studying coursebooks and instructional materials in terms of their cultural, social and value-based qualities has been a significant aspect of research in language education since what is inherent in coursebooks directly affects users' perspective. In this research study, contents of English language coursebooks used in Turkish senior primary schools are studied by focusing on how sports and recreational activities are portrayed in relation to some variables such as identities of the persons doing sports, which sports are particularly shown, and the social values associated with them. A total number of 3 coursebooks are studied and the findings revealed the problems associated with the representation of sports in these coursebooks. (Contains 4 tables.)
