Abstract [en]

The aim of this presentation is to illustrate the importance of the subject content in describing, practising and developing the ability of analysing societal issues in Social Studies education. The presented paper discusses results from a phenomenographic analysis of upper secondary students’ conceptions of power relations in society, as regards their way of analysing issues of power during Social Studies education. The research addresses the question of what aspects of the subject content that are critical for developing students’ conceptions in a way that promotes their ability to analyse issues of power relations. The data material consists of written pre- and post-tests from three research lessons of a learning study (Marton 2015; Runesson 2017). The research lessons were iteratively planned by teacher researchers (Thorsten, 2017) in collaboration with practising teachers, conducted in different student groups (in total 67 participating students) and analysed and revised before the beginning of a new cycle. The findings suggest that it is crucial for students to discern two aspects of the concept of power, in order to analyse the power relations that are in play in a specific societal situation; the difference between being responsible for and being the cause of a situation, and the difference between causation and relationship.
