Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Democracy is a term that has been researched, and still is researched, a lot. In my education to become a teacher it has been the subject that interests me the most and I would like to be able to contribute to this research. The starting point of this essay is that in my experience there is a difference in how the national curriculum describes democracy and how the students I have met describes it. Therefore I wanted to investigate whether this also applies to a wider context than the students that I meet in my everyday life. The purpose of this essay is; to examine whether students in the ninth grade has the same view on democracy as the national means of control.
The result I have attained through my work is that they somewhat share the same vision. Democratic values are highlighted as the most important democratic aspect. On the other hand students emphasize the society aspect more than the national curriculum does, these conditions describes how a democratic society should / can be built. Students do not think that the individual conditions are as important as national curriculum emphasize. The individual conditions describe what kind of requirements the people in a democracy has to live up to, such as knowledge and commitment.
