“You will not learn a lot if you do not talk about it” : A study of high school student’s perspective on teaching about xenophobia and multiculture (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka gymnasieungdomars perspektiv på undervisning kring främlingsfientlighet och mångkultur. I min litteraturgenomgång har jag fångat upp vad forskningen kring dessa områden menar är relevanta. Som datainsamlingsmetod valde jag att använda mig av gruppintervjuer. Sammanlagt deltog elva elever i undersökningen. Resultatet från mina gruppintervjuer diskuteras sedan mot den forskning jag presenterat i tidigare avsnitt samt mot olika gymnasieskolans olika styrdokument. Mitt resultat visar att det finns en vilja hos elever att i större utsträckning få diskutera och praktisera kunskaper kring främlingsfientlighet och mångkultur än vad de upplever att de idag får göra. Resultatet pekar även på att fler kulturmöten i skolan skulle verka positivt till att utveckla förståelse och tolerans gentemot människor från främmande kulturer.

Abstract [en]

The purpose with this study is to investigate high school students’ perspective on education, xenophobia and multiculture. In my literature review I present what scholars find relevant around these areas. I decided to use group interviews as a method of collecting data. Altogether eleven students participated in the study. Later I discuss the results from my group interviews in comparison towards the research I`ve presented in earlier sections of the study and the national curriculum of upper secondary school. My results point out that the student’s wishes to discuss and practice knowledge about xenophobia and multicultural more often than they experience they are allowed to do in these days. The result also points out that multi-cultural encounter develop the student’s ability to comprehend and to be more tolerant towards people from foreign cultures.
