Private economy in textbooks : A textbook study in civics about the private economy’s quantity and content (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Barn och ungas skulder som registrerats hos Kronofogden har under de senaste åren aldrig varit flera. Skolan har ett ansvar att försöka hindra denna oroväckande utveckling. Denna uppsats handlar om privatekonomins förekomst i tre olika läroböcker för samhällskunskap 1A1 på gymnasiet och har som mål att undersöka vilken hjälp dessa böcker ger lärare och elever på gymnasiet. I den senaste läroplanen SKOLFS 2011 har privatekonomi lagts till och är numera ett gymnasiegemensamt ämne som alla elever läser.

Genom ett kodschema har jag kunnat identifiera förekomsten av privatekonomin och bestämma kvantiteten av densamma genom räknandet av ord. Undersökningen är tvådelad där den andra delen analyserar innehållet och försöker göra slutsatser genom olika typer av textanalyser.

Slutsatsen för undersökningen är att de tre böckerna har olika styrkor och svagheter men framförallt är det språkbruket som skiljer sig åt. Ett lärobokstext bör inte kräva allt för stora förkunskaper eller läsförståelse i en A-kurs. Två av böckerna hanterar detta väl medan den tredje lyckas mindre bra.

Abstract [en]

The debts of children and teenagers that are registered at the Swedish Enforcement Authority, have in the past few years hit an all-time high. School has a responsibility to try and stop this disturbing development. This essay is about private economy and its existence in three different textbooks for civics 1A1 and the Swedish high school. The goal is to investigate which support these books can give teachers and students. Private economy is a recent addition to the Swedish teaching program 2011 and is now read by all high school students.

I have been able to identify the existence of private economy in textbooks by creating a code schedule. This way I have been able to decide the quantitative by simply counting words. The review is categorical in two parts where the second part illuminating the content and tries to make conclusions by different types of text analyses. 

The conclusion of this essay is that the books have its differences, both strengths and weaknesses. It is mostly the use of language that differs. A textbook in civics does not demand great text understanding. Two of the books handle this well, while the third one does not.
