Exploring America--How the U.S. is Depicted in Norway.
Nelson, Murry R.
This paper examines how the United States is portrayed in Norwegian textbooks. U.S. history receives rather brief treatment in most Norwegian history textbooks. Norwegian students learn about the United States largely in their studies of English. A chapter-by-chapter examination of the treatment of the United States in two English textbooks frequently used in Norwegian high schools is outlined. The examination revealed that the Norwegian syllabus emphasized three areas in the textbooks: (1) the structure and process of U.S. government; (2) U.S. immigration; and (3) ethnic groups in the United States, with special emphasis on Native Americans or African Americans. A 5-item list of references is included. (DB)
