Abstrak

Since, English was introduced to Indonesian Primary Schools in 1990s, it raised different perspectives on teachersí qualification and competence, syllabi, teaching aids, and learning materials.  Regarding a few (good) textbook available to support Indonesian literacy level, the present study aimed at finding out (1) what aspects the textbooks in use cover, and (2) what contribution of the aspects to the studentsí literacy development.


 


Employing five local English textbooks ranging from 4-6 grades as the main resource, the data were then analyzed using Nunan (1998). The study showed that the aspects covered are content topics, book map, sequence, and illustration. The textbooks covered the four language skills in various topics, though only few concerned on young learnersí literacy. The sequence did not help much to develop the student literacy. Only few provided a clear review of the materials presented. In some cases, the illustration did not bridge the new information and the studentsí prior knowledge. It might result in complexity or even confusion.


 To conclude, authorsí horizon may play a crucial role in developing studentsí literacy. Their knowledge and skills in packing the message can facilitate their readers to develop their literacy level; otherwise, their products merely present unsystematic materials.
