Abstract [en]

When the Swedish society becomes more multicultural and we have a more multicultural school, it is important that educators have an understanding and awareness of the cultural differences that may occur in teaching situations. We have chosen to focus our study on girls with a Muslim background and how they experience physical education in school. The subject physical education contains many different elements that can be seen as new and foreign to these students. We have also interviewed educators to see how they work with integration and how they handle any absence from PE classes. Our study contains both a qualitative and a quantitative part. The study is based on the socio-cultural theory, as it is about interaction between people with regard to one's background and language. The result from our study shows differences of the experiences that students and teachers have about PE. The study also shows that the schools have a development of work with integration, but are still lacking resources to integrate today’s students with a foreign background. The discussion in the study shows conclusions from the questionnaire and the interview survey which shows that there are difficulties for girls with Muslim background to participate in all different element that PE have. The educators, however, can not see such difficulties and they may let the student complete the course even though they have not completed the standards for it.
