Are the future citizens motivated to be critical to sources? : – A study of students’ habits, inner motivation and societal views of critical thinking towards sources. (English)
Abstract [en]

This is a study that has been done on students in high school trying to map out their relationship to the practice of being critical towards sources. The study is built on the world view of the importance of being critical towards sources in a democratic society. The study’s main concepts are the ability of critical assessment of sources and its place in society and students inner motivation. The relevance of critical assessment of sources in society is held as a background to legitimize the study itself. While inner motivation is used as a measuring tool to survey the students relationship to being critical towards sources. The study finds that most of the students assess sources critically at least monthly. Regarding the students inner motivation to learn critical assessment of sources, they find it more meaningful than interesting. The same can be concluded when survey the students inner motivation of assessing sources critically, that a larger portion of the group of student find it more meaningful than interesting. We find differences between different types of sources. The students social views of the assessment of being critical towards sources is that is an important ability to have.
