Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis was to describe how a contemporary textbook and its workbook forSwedish upper secondary English A course reflects integration of immigrants and fundamentalvalues for a society based on cultural diversity. A textual analysis of the texts in the textbook,questions and activities in the workbook, and a visual analysis of the images of the textbook werecarried out using quantitative and qualitative methods. The result of the study indicates that thethemes, texts, personalities, writers and images of the textbook appear to be selected consciouslyto avoid portraying stereotype messages and views of “them”, who are different. Although thereare a couple of stereotype messages, the textbook offers teachers and pupils of English A coursea wide range of texts and images, including activities in the workbook, which can be used to meetthe goals in LPF 94 regarding integration of immigrants and fundamental norms and values for asociety based on cultural diversity.
