Special teachers' and teacher assistants´ understanding of educational concepts in relation to their profession in an upper secondary school for students with learning disabilities (English)
Abstract [en]

Building upon the genuine interest regarding consensus about the learning-process, the pur-pose of this study is to examine special teachers´ and teacher-assistants´ vision regarding their teaching in a Swedish upper secondary school for pupils with learning disabilities, focusing on their own priorities within their profession. Based on my own experiences as a teacher-assistant and a special teacher in the Swedish compulsory school and upper secondary school for pupils with learning disabilities,The ambition is to be able to draw conclusions from the study's focus groups and how the pro-fessionals discuss different concepts that form the basis of the present study. My hope is that this study will provide knowledge about these central concepts which are “foundation, collabora-tion, curriculum, consensus, development, learning, independence, relationships, teaching, knowledge, adaptations and care”.In order to get the special teachers´ and teacher assistants´ views on the teaching and what the focus is in the teaching, the focus groups were divided into two groups, one with special teach-ers and one with teacher assistants. The reason for this was to allow the participants to speak freely and discuss based on their own view of their professions in interaction with others in the same situationFrom the data gathered in this study, one can conclude that special teachers and teacher assis-tants work in a sociocultural perspective where interactions between the different parties are seen as the most important aspect within their teaching. The results also show that the school in question has a good integration between the professions. However, the term consensus has proven difficult to interpret in connection to dealing with the students and may be used as a topic for future studies.
