Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this essay is to analyze how two different coursebooks, Pioneer 2 andContext 2, present non-white/non-western culture and contribute in promoting both cultural awareness and democratic values at English 6 of Swedish upper secondary school. To be able to do such an analysis a broad theoretical background on cultural awareness and democratic values is given. The essay will demonstrate that the textbooks of the study have different approaches to cultural awareness and that textbooks used in language teaching can be different while still attaining the overall purpose of the Swedish curricula. The first book presents a lighter and less detailed view on culture, but with more varied sections using authentic texts, comparisons between cultures and static cultural outlook. The second book uses fewer examples but goes more in depth with each example using authentic texts, intercultural comparisons, and focused sections, leading to a better understanding of culture as dynamic.
