A Curriculim with Limited Space for Interpretation? : An Investigation of Lgr11 from a Reader - Response Theory Perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

This essays aim is to investigate the possibilities of subjective interpretation of Lgr11, the Swedish curriculum for elementary school. The assignment that the Swedish authority Skolverket got in 2009, was to create a curriculum that would grant that the students achievements would not be influenced by any subjective opinions and that all elementary schools in Sweden will give an equivalent education. In the Government bill this is a theme throughout the text and the Minister of Education has also claimed that this document will leave very limited space for subjective reading and interpretation. He says that Lgr11, in contrast to the previous curriculim Lpo94, will clarify what the purpose of the different subjects is and on what grounds the assessment of the students should be based.

The method used is the literary theories of reader – response as they are expressed by Literarycriticist Stanley Fish. To access a deeper perspective I also apply the ideas of thoughtcollectives as they are formulated by Epistemologist Ludwik Fleck.

This essay indicates that there are complex problems in the text and argues that it contains valueladen, abstract words, contradictions and interpretable language. It illustrates problems that this can lead to when different readingcommunities and thoughtcollectives shall come to an agreement about what the text really means and how the students performance will be assessed.
