Abstract [en]

To grasp what learning, teaching and knowing health might be in relation to a physical activity, the study explores what ninth grade students find difficult, and what they need to discern in teaching to experience the knowing of participation and evaluation of street dance classes through the concepts comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness. These concepts are brought from Aron Antonovsky perspective of salutogenic health by Sense of Coherence (SOC). However I do not claim to embrace the complete SOC since it relates to life as a whole (Antonovsky, 1991; 2005).

The aim of the study is to investigate how to deal with the content of teaching making the students develop the ability to participate and evaluate physical activity in relation to the concepts mentioned. Furthermore by using the onset of phenomenography and theory of variation the study explores ways for teachers and students to discern critical features of the content of teaching.

The study design used is Learning study. It is a cyclic, pedagogical design aiming for making it possible for teachers to scientifically explore the quality of their own teaching in relation to a specific content being taught. In a Learning study teachers are collaborating with content of teaching, trying to discern critical features of the content to make these aspects come clear for the students in renewed teaching. A phenomenographic perspective is used to discern how the students’ experiences of the teaching content vary. The theory of variation is used for planning and carrying out lessons and evaluating them in order to make the critical aspects discernable for the students.

Three lessons within one Learning study cycle were staged. They were videotaped and field notes were taken. The sample consisted of three groups of ninth grade students, 15 to 16 years of age (n=52) and three teachers.

Three critical aspects according to the object of learning were discerned in the study:

  • Experiences of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness within the context of street dance.
  • Experiences of different forms of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness within different situations of the context of street dance.
  • Within the context of street dance experience how the actions and experiences of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness by oneself simultane-ously relates to actions and experiences of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness of others.

The study shows how young students’ ability to carry through and evaluate street dance with point of departure in the meaning of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness may be improved when the students are offered a variation in the critical features of the subject content.

Baksidestext:

Denna licentiatuppsats handlar om åk 9-elevers erfaranden av lärandeobjektet genomföra och värdera street dance utifrån begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet.

Vad eleverna erfor av lärandeobjektet kartlades före undervisning och preliminära kritiska aspekter identifierades. Kritiska aspekter är aspekter av lärandeobjektet som eleverna inte har urskilt. I efterföljande undervisning erbjöds eleverna variation i de kritiska aspekterna. Därefter analyserades vad eleverna erfarit av lärandeobjektet samt vilken variation i de kritiska aspekterna som erbjudits eleverna.

Studien är genomförd enligt principen för den didaktiska modellen Learning study. De metodologiska utgångspunkterna är fenomenografi och variationsteori.

Studiens resultat visar att de elever som erfor variation i relationen mellan begreppen och street dance och dessutom samtidigt kunde urskilja sina egna och kamraters handlingar i sammanhanget utifrån begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet erfor lärandeobjektet mer differentierat. Resultatet visar också att olika elevgruppers erfaranden av lärandeobjektet sammanföll med hur de kritiska aspekterna hade behandlats i undervisningen.

Eleverna problematiserade i studien möjligheter och villkor för begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet vid genomförandet av rörelse i street dance i ett gemensamt upplevt sammanhang.
