Abstract [en]

The mission with this essay is to find out how children talk about religion and what they associate the concept to. The purpose is also to investigate how children resonate about  religion as a subject in school. Do they think the education is important or would they rather be without it? And what do they actually know about differences within religion and cultures? It is important in today´s society that children have knowledge about different religions as it can contribute to mutual understanding between each others different religions and cultures. Such mutual understanding can counteract religious conflicts. Eighteen children have been interviewed and the method that I used for the interviews is called focus-groups. It's a kind of group interview where focus is based on the children’s interaction with each other and to find out how they in group talk about religion and religion as a subject in school. The results show that most of the children have a positive view of religion. They think it's an important subject in school. Some think it's so important that they could not live without it.  It was a few children who didn't have as big enthusiasms about the subject as others. The results also show that the religion that was primarily conveyed in school was Christianity. And the survey also shows that teachers use varied methodology in religious education, such as through ICT and aesthetic learning processes
