Abstract

A content analysis of 'BRIGHT 1' English textbook is a research on the way a 2013 curriculum-based textbook is presented. This study reports on a content analysis investigating whether 'BRIGHT 1' for year VII students meets the characteristics of a good English textbook and reflects the 2013 curriculum. Data on content analysis were gathered from an English textbook entitled 'Bright 1'. Four evaluators and three classes of students were given questioners. They also were interviewed for verifying the data. A descriptive-evaluative content analysis was used in evaluating the textbook. The procedure of this research adopts the procedure suggested by Ur (2009: 185-187) that includes three steps as follows: deciding on criteria, applying criteria, and summary. This research applied two techniques of analyzing the data that are manually counting the data from the questionnaire into percentages and adopting the procedure of data analysis by Miles and Huberman (1994) for the data from interview transcript. The procedure of data analysis included data reduction, data display, conclusion drawing and verification. Results showed that 'BRIGHT 1' English textbook has strengths and weaknesses. This textbook has reflected seven characteristics of a good English textbook and has implemented the scientific approach steps of 2013 curriculum. The other three aspects that are the Core Competences and the Basic Competences, the material, and the assessment standards are presented well in this textbook but some aspects are need to be improved.
