Abstract [en]

The aim of this piece of work is to highlight and investigate young female’s motivation in participation of P.E classes and the degree to which the content of classes affect their motivation. To support this piece of work two theories have been utilized, the Self-determination Theory and a gender related perspective theory. The research consists of six qualitative interviews of young females who are perceived to be less motivated. These interviews focus on their views and attitudes in relation to P.E within the Swedish high school setting. The aim of this is to increase understanding and awareness for younger female’s attitudes and personal views in relation to P.E. The results show that the participants preferred a wider range of activities and level appropriate activities. To reach this desired goal the student’s wish for gender divided classes, for example female only swimming classes, and female only gym lessons, activities in which they have an increased chance of feeling exposed. In other cases where exposure is decreased a wider range of activities should be offered together with a focus on the individuals’ competence level. Another result that was evident is this research was that the young females who received grades in P.E were rarely driven of the intrinsic desire to succeed.
