Equal teaching materials? : A study on the portrayal of women and men in teaching materials for Swedish 1 (English)
The study aims to analyze whether two selected teaching materials intended for Swedish 1 published in 2014 and 2015 reflects the gender equality in Gy11. The study consists of a quantitative analysis and a discourse analysis that focus on how often and in what way women and men are depicted in the teaching material. The analyzed teaching materials are the textbooks Svenska 1 – helt enkelt and Fixa språket 1. The result shows that both books are quantitatively equal since men and women get almost as much space in the text and the image. However, the genders are depicted in different ways and constitute the norm in separate areas. The textbooks can even be said to be heteronormative. The result also shows that both textbooks raise gender equality issues, which should be seen as positive because education, according Gy11, should be characterized by a gender equality perspective.
