Mellan tradition och ideal: En uppsats om den modererande lärarrollens hinder i klassrummet
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In order to be a good teacher according to preferences from outside the school area, there are many different voices to listen to. The different roles that are assigned for teachers are colliding with the latest research from the pedagogical institutions and therefore the role as a teacher of today is in a complex state of mind. Somewhere, between the traditional role of teaching and the moderating ideal image, reality is revealed in the ambivalent role of the teacher of today. In this pedagogical essay on advanced level we are focusing on obstacles that are hindering the moderating teacher’s role, to be fully developed in the classroom. We will also discuss why it seems to be troublesome for the real world-teacher to live up to the ideal that pedagogical researchers are aiming for. Our claim is that the traditional role of teaching is hindering the development towards a more moderating classroom, because of the society’s assumptions surrounding the role of being a teacher. With our theoretical view of hermeneutics we are using the text analysis as a method to reveal assumptions according to the teacher’s role. With this theoretical point of view, we are trying to explain the complexity of the teacher’s role. Different voices are trying to shape the teacher for their own purposes, which make impressions on today’s educational system and above all the role of the teacher.
