This qualitative descriptive study aims to assess the alignment between the cognitive domain of Revised Bloom's Taxonomy and the worksheets in the English textbook “English for Nusantara” published by Pusat Perbukuan used for the 7th grade of SMP students. The research focuses on analyzing 177 activities within the textbook, categorizing them based on their cognitive domain using a data analysis table. The results indicate that the activities are distributed as follows: 114 (64.4%) in the remembering category, 12 (6.8%) in understanding, 6 (3.4%) in applying, 16 (9.0%) in analyzing, 5 (2.8%) in evaluating, and 24 (13.6%) in creating. Among these activities, 45 (25.4%) fall under the higher-order thinking skills (HOTS) category, while 132 (74.6%) are classified as lower-order thinking skills (LOTS). The dominant activity type observed is remembering, which represents the lowest cognitive level in Revised Bloom's Taxonomy. Additionally, the distribution of LOTS and HOTS activities varies significantly across different chapters. These findings suggest that relying solely on the English textbook may not be sufficient for developing students' higher-order thinking skills (HOTS).
