ABSTRACT
This study aims to investigate the extent to which English textbooks which are locally designed for primary education in Iranian state schools reflect Multiple Intelligences. Based on the framework of the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, a multiple intelligence checklist was developed to examine each textbook in relation to different intelligences as reflected through different activities and tasks. It has been found that the intelligence profile of English textbooks is predominantly logical-mathematical and visual/spatial. Musical and Verbal/Linguistic intelligence are identified as the least intelligence type, and no example of Natural, interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence was found. However, any fair percentage of distribution for the remaining intelligence types was recorded.
