Interkulturell pedagogik: En studie om fem lärares förhållningssätt i en mångkulturell klass
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this essay is to study five teachers' perceptions and experiences of a multicultural class. I want to find out how they relate to intercultural education and how they experience that they may apply it.
Sweden is a multicultural society. This fact is even reflected in the school and this imposes on teachers finding new ways to educate and prepare their students for the multicultural society.
I chose to carry out a qualitative survey and interviewed five teachers having contact with a multicultural class. The study also offers suggestions to future teachers who can benefit from it in terms of adopting convenient attitudes in multicultural classes with better understanding.
The outcome reached shows that the interviewed teachers try to make use of intercultural pedagogy by addressing differences between students, adapting teaching to supply for the needs of students, and also by having good contact with parents. But teachers also experience difficulties. For example, they neither receive enough training in the research area nor have sufficient contact with native teachers who are important resources in multicultural schools.
