Bu çalışma, hizmet öncesi İngilizce öğretmenlerinin,Türkiye’de Ortaokul 5. sınıf öğrencileri tarafından kullanılan ders kitabını değerlendirme süreci ve  bu kitap için tamamlayıcı materyal hazırlama uygulaması hakkındaki görüşlerini içermektedir. Çalışmanın katılımcılarını, bir devlet üniversitesinde Yabancı Diller Eğitimi bölümündeki son sınıf öğrencileri oluşturmaktadır. Çalışmada, veri toplama yöntemi olarak nitel yaklaşım uygulanmış ve yarı yapılandırılmış görüşme tekniği kullanılmıştır. Elde edilen veriler, içerik analizi yöntemiyle incelenmiştir. Yapılan değerlendirmeler, ders kitabı değerlendirme etkinliği, katılımcılar tarafından mesleki gelişimlerine sahip oldukları bilgi ve becerileri kullanma fırsatını sağlamasından dolayı oldukça faydalı bulunmuştur. Ayrıca, tamamlayıcı materyal hazırlamayla ilgili olarak katılımcılar bu etkinliğin özellikle öz güvenlerini geliştirmede etkili olduğunu belirtmişlerdir. 

The current study comprises the views of the pre-service English language teachers on the process of coursebook evaluation and creating supplementary activities for the coursebook written for the fifth graders at middle schools in Turkey. The participants included seniors in the Department of Foreign Language Education at a state university in Turkey. A qualitative approach was adopted and semi-structured interviews were used. The data were subject to content analysis. The results indicated that the participants valued the coursebook evaluation activity due to the contribution of this activity to their professional development, which encouraged them to use previous knowledge and skills. Moreover, the participants also noted that creating supplementary materials helped improve especially their self-confidence.
