Abstract [en]

This essay takes a closer look at gender in connection to school and English as a second language. Through the works of a number of authors, the subject of gender is explained and there are explanations to how everyone takes part in the process of creating gender even as children. One section of the essay is about how teachers together with their students and colleagues can work with issues related to gender to create a more equal classroom, in order for everyone to have the same opportunities for a good future. The essay also includes a discussion of the results of a small-scale questionnaire-based research task carried out at an upper secondary school in Småland, in the south of Sweden. It investigates whether pupils at that particular school find themselves treated in different ways because of their sex. It also investigates if teachers find themselves treating their pupils differently and if so, on purpose. The reason for using a research is to connect the theory of the books to the reality in school.
