Abstract

Title: Is it in line? – Textbook analysis in religious studies liked to a specific core content

 

The purpose of this study is to find out how the core content "How different life issues, such as the meaning of life, relationships, love, and sexuality is portrayed in popular culture” (Skolverket, 2011) is handled in three different textbooks within the subject of religion. The textbooks examined are PRIO Religion Stadiebok, Religion och liv 7-9 and Utkik Religion 7-9. These textbooks are published by distinguished publishers and they are common in the Swedish school teaching of religion. The selected textbooks are published after 2011, when the new curriculum in Lgr11 was introduced.

The study uses a content analysis as a method. In this case, textbooks linked to the core content of the school subject religion are analyzed.

The research questions for this study are:

  • How is the central content "How different life issues, such as the meaning of life, relationships, love, and sexuality is portrayed in popular culture" in the school's religious topic, handled in the textbooks PRIO Religion Stadiebok, Religion och liv 7-9 and Utkik Religion 7-9?
  • How do these three textbooks differ. What consequences may the usage of different textbooks have for different schools?
  • What values ​​are conveyed in the parts that deal with the specified key content? Do the values of the books agree with the school values?

The conclusion of this study is that textbooks focus more on some parts then others and they also differ in how they treat the central content.
