Abstract [en]

The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to examine upper secondary students’ attitudes towards historical feature films and documentaries as teaching materials in history education. A survey was cunducted with 133 students. The students were asked for advantages and disadvantages with films and documentaries, what knowledge they might gain from watching, and the films trustworthiness as a teaching aid.

The result shows that the students generally are positive towards the usage of film in history education and consider films to be a good complement to other teaching methods, especially documentaries. They are considered more trustworthy than feature films, despite being regarded as a more tedious genre. On the other hand, both feature films and documentaries are said to increase an interest in history. The knowledge mentioned by the students are primarely factual knowledge. However, a few answers indicate that film also can help develop students historical literacy, visualise historical events, and time periods. Students’ trust for the feature films’ nar-rative and the documentaries’ objectivity are quite high. Paradoxically, the majority of the stu-dents claim to question whether the films’ content is historically correct or not.
