Abstract [en]

This study compares two educational  materials for English education on how different  genderidentities and sexualities are represented in text and illustrations. The  curriculum  for the Swedish school (Skolverket 2016, Lgr11) is based on a value system, one of equality. The equality program in the  curriculum  includes awareness of and  respect toward different genders, and is against offensive treatment based on excessive gender expressions, sexualities, ethnicities, body capabilities, religions, and age. Traditional gender roles are to be questioned and countervailed, so that all children can develop their own personal qualities and interests without the influences of gender standards. The  equality program is meant  to be a part of the daily learning environment.  Educational  materials should  therefor  reflect diversity, according to the value system (Berge, 2011). Pupils can read many different  educational texts  each da y, and reflect on illustrations and pictures. All these materials can affect pupils’ values and standards. Indeed, pupils can learn more than English when the educational  materials covers more than the  subjects’ core information.
