Health within the subject Life Orientation : A study regarding health educationwithin the subject Life Orientation in a high school in Cape Town. (English)
Abstract [sv]

I det svenska ämnet Idrott och Hälsa fokuserar undervisningen om hälsa främst på att medvetandegöra den fysiska aktivitetens påverkan på hälsa. I Sydafrika undervisas istället hälsa ur ett bredare perspektiv, inom ett ämne som kallas Life Orientation, där fler faktorer än enbart den fysiska aktivitetens påverkan belyses. Syftet med denna studie är att beskriva hur undervisningen inom ämnet LO på en gymnasieskola i Kapstaden, Sydafrika går till samt undersöka elevernas upplevelse av vad undervisningen bidrar med till deras syn på hälsa. Data har samlats in under en tre veckor lång praktiknära vistelse genom två kvalitativa metoder, fokusgrupper med elever och observationer i klassrum. Undersökningen genomfördes i ett arbetarklassamhälle kallat Ocean View, där de socio-ekonomiska förutsättningarna kan beskrivas som låga. Resultatet visar ett ensidigt undervisningsmönster samt beskriver delar av vad eleverna anser att de lär sig om hälsa inom ämnet. På resultatet appliceras sedan en bioekologisk hälsomodell för att försöka förstå elevernas upplevelse av vad undervisningen bidrar med till deras syn på hälsa.

Abstract [en]

The education regarding health in the Swedish subject physical education mainly focuses on the influence of physical activity in relation to health promotion. In South Africa, health education is mediated in a wider perspective within the subject Life Orientation, where more influences than physical activity are considered. The purpose with this research is to describe how the education regarding health within the subject LO at one high school in Cape Town, South Africa, works and to study the learners’ perception of what the education are contributing with to their view on health. Data have been collected during three weeks through focus groups (consisting of the learners) and observations within the classroom. The research was conducted in a working-class area, called Ocean View, where the socioeconomic factors can be described as low. The result is showing a one-sided teaching approach and it also describes parts of what the learners´ claim that they learn regarding health in LO. A bioecological health model will then be applied on the result, trying to understand and enlighten the learners´ perception of what the education are contributing with to their view on health.
