pp. 1 - 17   |  DOI: 10.29329/ijler.2022.588.1


The aim of the study is to determine the bibliotherapeutic elements in the texts of the 7th grade Turkish textbooks of MEB publications. In the study, the documents were examined in detail by using the case design, which is one of the qualitative research methods. Document analysis, which is considered as a systematic method, was used to collect data. The data were collected from the texts of the 7th grade Turkish textbook of MEB Publications. A new rubric was used to collect the data, using the list developed by Erdemir (2016). The frequency values of the obtained data were analyzed using descriptive analysis technique. Based on the data, a total of 152 bibliotherapeutic elements were identified in the texts, and it was observed that these elements were disproportionately distributed among the texts and themes. It has been determined that the most common bibliotherapeutic element (f=19) in the 7th grade Turkish textbook texts is "having national, spiritual and cultural values", and the least element is "being sensitive to the problems of the globalizing world". In order to use bibliotherapy more effectively and efficiently, providing in-service training to teachers and getting opinions from experts on this subject for texts to be included in Turkish textbooks are suggested as solutions.
