This study is an example study to determine the level of handling lifelong learning skills in the textbooks. The universe of the study consists of Turkish Language textbooks studied in fourth grade elementary schools of Erzurum province during the academic year 2011-2012; and sample is a publication randomly selected among these textbooks. In collection of data document analysis method, which is one of the qualitative research methods, has been used. In the analysis of collected data, content analysis method has been used. In this study, it has been tried to determine that whether lifelong learning skills have been used in the passages of textbooks or not and which skills have been mentioned the most and which has been mentioned the least. Each text has been investigated by the researcher separately by using pre-defined codes appropriate to skill themes, and lifelong learning skills contained in the texts have been identified. As a result of the content analysis of forty texts, it has been determined that effective reading and writing skills, social skills and learning to learn skills are more frequently handled in the texts. Also, being in charge of self- learning, in-depth reasoning skills are two least handled skills. It has been determined that explanatory texts are more effective than poetries in gaining ‘Lifelong Learning Skills’ and short texts include less skill features compared to long texts. This study is an example study about level of handling ‘Lifelong Learning Skills’ in the textbooks and similar studies can be conducted with different textbooks.
