Abstract :

Curriculum plays a vital role in any educational system so textbooks, being the main part of curriculum in Pakistan, need to be designed, evaluated and enhanced systematically according to the needs of the learners in Pakistan. The present research evaluated English textbooks selected for implementation by Dar-e-Arqam School in grades 6th and 7th. It analyzed those textbooks, before their implementation in the classrooms according to the English language needs of learners in Pakistan. The evaluation was done through the evaluation criteria developed by the researchers themselves. The study revealed that according to the needs analysis, the focus should be on the speaking skills of the learners mostly, which is the main requirement. But the present syllabus pays maximum attention on teaching the grammar of English language, which has the least requirement for the students. Thus, the study concludes that the prescribed textbooks do not meet the needs of the learners of Pakistan and suggests that the school may either improve those books or select any other appropriate books, for a successful learning of English language.
