Online Submission, Baskent University Journal of Education v1 n1 p27-33 2014
This study aims to analyze two coursebooks, namely, "Texture of English 4" and "My English 5" on the basis of to what extent the activities and tasks included reflect the intelligent types proposed by multiple intelligences theory. Taking the general characteristics of the intelligences into account, a checklist has been designed and the activities in those two coursebooks were categorized according to the checklist prepared. It is found that although both coursebooks represent different intelligence types and at varying degrees, verbal/linguistic intelligence is the predominant one while the naturalist intelligence is represented the least. Results also showed that there is not any example of existential intelligence.
