Abstract : Textbooks play a pivotal role in language learning classrooms. The problem is that among a wide range of textbooks in the market which one is appropriate for a specific classroom with a group of learners. In order to evaluate ELT textbooks, theorists and writers have offered different kinds of evaluative frameworks based on a number of principles and criteria. This study evaluates a series of ELT textbooks, namely, American English File by using Littlejohn's (1998) evaluative framework to see what the explicit features of the book are, what pedagogic values it has, whether it is in line with its claimed objectives, and what its merits and demerits are. Littlejohn believes that we should evaluate a textbook by its there pedagogic values and we should see what there is in it not what teacher and evaluators think must be in it. Consequently his framework is claimed to be devoid of any impressionistic ideas and is in-depth and objective rather than subjective. Nine ELT experts and ten ELT teachers helped the researcher rate the evaluative checklists. The results of the study showed that although a number of shortcomings and drawbacks were found in American English File, it stood up reasonably well to a detailed and in-depth analysis and its pedagogic values and positive attributes far outweighed the shortcomings. The internal consistency between the ratings was computed via the statistical tool of Cronbach's alpha indicating a desirable inter-rater reliability. Keywords: ELT textbooks; Littlejohn's framework; American English file series; Evaluation.
