    Demokratiuppdrag och demokratiska arbetsformer i grundskolans mellanår: En demokratididaktisk studie med fokus på SO-undervisning2018Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with the democracy mission of school, in which democratic working methods are a central part. The aim is to contribute with knowledge about how teachers as professional actors construct meaning of and shape to the democracy mission of school. Six teachers working in grades 4-6, have been interviewed on two occasions each, and one social science lesson by each teacher has been observed.

    The study is based on a social constructionist basis. The teachers are regarded as actors in the construction of the democratic mission of school. The results show different democracy theoretical influences operating in the teachers' constructions, and that the didactic dimensions are complex. The teachers value the democracy mission as important and always present in their everyday practice, but at the same time, it appears to be invisible and implicit. The results can be read as a story that begins in a perceived problem where teachers talk about the democracy mission as diffuse, in competition with other obligations, and associated with different dilemmas. However, when the teachers continue their stories, they start to fill the democracy mission with legitimacy, meaning and content. Examples of possible meanings that emerge are to promote respectful interaction between all persons in school, to offer students influence and choices, to encourage students to develop a willingness to participate in and influence the society and an everyday school practice permeated with democratic values.

    When the teachers describe the meanings of democratic working methods they talk about establishing formal student participation, non-formalized student participation, methods of work which involve cooperation between the students and the learning processes in which the students gradually develop the ability to exercise influence on their learning.

    The teachers regard the democratic mission as a matter of concern for all school subjects, but the social sciences are given a particular position in relation to both working methods and content.
