Dilemmas of adjustments : A study of how teachers in social studies understand and interpret the concept of additional adaptations (English)
Abstract [sv]

Skolan har ett viktigt uppdrag när det kommer till extra anpassningar. Både svensk och internationell forskning lägger fokus på samarbete bland alla skolans professioner i utformningen av olika stödåtgärder (Scherp & Scherp, 2007; Hernandez, 2013; m.fl.). Lärare i denna studie utrycker vikten av att ett sådant samarbete. Detta samarbete ska enligt dem inte bara gälla lärare emellan, utan samtlig personal på skolan. I denna studie framkommer det att de intervjuade lärarna hade en mer bred uppfattning av begreppet extra anpassningar, än vad som anges i Skolverkets allmänna råd på området (Skolverket, 2014a). Denna mer breda uppfattning handlade inte bara om elever i svårigheter utan kan snarare kopplas samman med begrepp som allmänna anpassningar, eller individuella anpassningar. De ser anpassningar i allmänna ordalag som extremt viktiga för att alla elevers möjligheter till utveckling och lärande. Exempel på mer allmänna anpassningar var anpassningar för elevernas intresse och anpassningar för studiemotiverade elever.

I denna studie framträder även läraryrkets dubbla uppdrag tydligt. Detta dubbla uppdrag handlar om att få eleverna att utvecklas mot kunskapskraven och ett demokratiskt fostrande uppdrag. Det framkommer att lärarna upplever båda dessa uppdrag som drivande i deras anpassningsarbete, vilket blir särskilt tydligt inom ämnet samhällskunskap.

Abstract [en]

The school has an important assignment when it comes to additional adaptations. Both Swedish and international research focuses on cooperation among all the schools' professions in the making of various support measures (Scherp & Scherp, 2007; Hernandez, 2013; m.fl.). Teachers in this study emphasize the importance of such cooperation. According to them, this cooperation should not only apply to teachers, but to all staff active within the school organisation. In this study, it is found that the interviewed teachers had a broader idea of the concept of additional adaptations then what is stated in Skolverkets Education's general advice on the subject in question (Skolverket, 2014). This broader view was not only about students with difficulties, but could rather be linked to concepts such as general adaptations, or individual adaptations. They see adaptations in general terms as extremely important for all pupils' opportunities for development and learning. Examples of more general adaptations were adaptations for student interests and adaptations for more study motivated students.

In this study, the dual mission of the teaching profession becomes apparent. This dual mission is about getting students to evolve toward the knowledge requirements and a democratically fostering mission. It appears that the teachers experience both of these missions as a driving force in their adaptation work, which becomes particularly clear in the field of social sciences.
