Pedagogernas arbetssätt i en mångkulturell kommunal skola och en friskola: Ett interkulturellt perspektiv på undervisning
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study is to search for and compare how teachers in a multicultural municipal school and in a multicultural independent school design their teaching to benefit all the students in the classroom, regardless of background.
I wanted to get information about how teachers work from an intercultural perspective. To get information I used qualitative methods, which includes interviews and observations. I interviewed four teachers working in a primary school. Two from a independent school and two from a municipal school.
The result revealed that both the independent school and municipal school are working from an intercultural perspective where they try to find different methods to reach every student in the class. Their biggest similarity is that the teachers put a lot of effort on language development since the Swedish language is key to the Swedish society. In both schools, the teachers worked with students both individually and in groups, but the difference is that in the independent school the teachers focus more on the individual than they do in the municipal school. This may be due to such factors as the number of students in the class and access to an assistant teacher. The teachers in the independent school gives priority to order and structure in the classroom, compared to the municipal school.
