Integration or supplements : A qualitative study about the inclusion of gender perspectives in history teaching (English)
The aim of this paper is to elucidate and analyze history teacher's didactic choices in the conflict between unequal educational materials and the requirements of equality in the curriculum of Swedish secondary school. The empirical data consists of interviews with five secondary school history teachers, observations of their lessons as well as analysis of their tests. The starting point was to investigate teachers' didactic work in the role as a bridge between the non-equal historiography presented in textbooks in history and the curriculum’s demands for equality. Three different approaches have been observed in the teachers' didactic work when considering gender perspective into their teaching: that women become extensions in a male-dominated historiography; that another part of the story is presented when a gender perspective is considered; and that the gender perspective is included in history teaching and becomes an integral part of all the content of the subject.
Several of the teachers acknowledged that gender equality is less prioritized than the courses core content and related assessment criteria. By analyzing the data, using theories of gender, this paper concludes that the lack of equal substance content also depends on the school's gender regime in which the male-dominant history is seen as more important than the one that integrates both men and women.
