Democratic theoretic ideals of political participation are made visible in teaching (English)
Abstract [en]

The forms of political participation is changing and the number of members of political parties and organizations decreases and even faster in youth assossiations. Though studies show that the political interest among youths are high and that they participate politically in other ways. The school as a whole must therefore adapt the teaching as society changes, which places new demands on participation. This survey focuses on three upper secondary school teachers who teach the subject of civic studies and are conducted with kvalitative semi-structured interviews. The purpose of the study is to find out which teaching in democracy that the teachers pursue against society's demands for new forms of participation. The analysis of the interviews are performed with theories of ideal participation democratic models. The theory models are, electoral ideal model, demoratic participation ideal model and deliberative democratic ideal. The teachers' perception of students' political participation is also of interest and is analyzed based on Ekman and Linde's definition table on political activity. The semi-structured interviews has generated useful data that is presented in the Result-chapter. The main conclusion that the study has landed in is that the teachers whom has participated, mainly are making the democratic electoral ideal model visible in their class room for participation. Teachers’ perception of students’ political participation varies.

Abstract [sv]

Formerna för politiskt deltagande står i förändring och antalet medlemmar i politiska partier och organisationer sjunker och desto snabbare i ungdomsförbund. Studier visar dock att det politiska intresset bland unga är stort och att de deltar i det politiska på andra sätt. Skolan som helhet måste därför anpassa undervisningen i takt med att samhället förändras som ställer nya krav på deltagande. Den här undersökningen fokuserar på tre gymnasielärare som undervisar i ämnet samhällskunskap och genomförs med kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer. Studiens syfte är att ta reda på vilken undervisning i demokrati som lärarna bedriver mot samhällets krav på nya deltagandeformer. Analysen av intervjuerna görs med teoridemokratiska idealmodeller för deltagande vilka synliggörs i undervisningen enligt lärarna själva. Valdemokratisk idealmodell, deltagardemokratisk idealmodell samt deliberativt demokratiideal. Lärarnas uppfattning om elevers politiska deltagande är också av intresse och analyseras baserat på Ekman och Lindes definitionstabell om politisk aktivitet. De semistrukturerade intervjuerna har genererat användbart material som presenteras i resultatkapitlet och slutsatserna har landat i att de medverkande lärarna synliggör till största del en valdemokratisk idealmodell för deltagande. Lärares uppfattning om elevers politiska deltagande varierar.
