The availability of instructional materials is essential to support teaching and learning activity. In Indonesia, textbooks become the popular instructional materials used in English Language Teaching (ELT). Unfortunately, textbooks are sometimes developed for commercial purposes only. Further, the textbooks are not always appropriate with the condition of the classroom. Thus, assessing textbooks becomes necessary to be done to know their values. This study is intended to know whether or not the materials in the textbook “Pathway to English” for the twelfth grade students meet Tomlinson‟s (2011) principles. The researcher applies qualitative content analysis as the research design. The findings show that the materials in the textbook (especially chapter 9) meet the ten Tomlinson‟s (2011) principles. Based on the findings, the textbook can be a useful source of learning materials and help the students, especially EFL students, in learning English.
