The Use of History? : Analyzis of the Use of History Based on the Upper Secondary School´s Curricula in History 1970-2011 (English)
Abstract [en]

A new curriculum, entailing news for teachers as well as students, was implemented in 2011. Among other things History has been given a more prominent position in that every student will now study the subject. Can this decision lead to history being used more in the future?

The aim of this thesis is to study the new curriculum, Gy11, as well the Lpf94 and Lgy70, based on Klas-Göran Karlsson´s typology where the use of history is divided into seven different categories. I will analyze the curricula, looking at what different uses of history that can be discerned as well as what changes have been made over time. Furthermore I will deal with the uses of history being the most and least prominent ones in the respective curricula.

Most practices but not everyone can be seen. Over time some practices have an even distribution while others have an increased representation. The practice being the most frequent one is the scholarly while the ones being the least prominent are the ideological and the commercial.

Conclusively it can be said that the curricula have over time rendered a possibility to an increased use of history.
