A living classroom : Investigations of how reenactment and historical role-play may be implemented in the history tuition in junior high school (English)
Abstract [en]

In today’s history teaching in Sweden, role-play and historical re-enactment receive little

attention. Even though many students find history as a subject boring and irrelevant, very

little is done to improve the mode of teaching. My theses is that this could be done by

presenting new ways of teaching and at the same time find a way to make more students

interested in history. The main aim is to investigate if there are ways to offer students an

experience of history by carrying out different interactive exercises with a touch of roleplay

and historical recreation. In this essay, three exercises of that type have been

constructed based on how historical role-plays have been used at museums and historical

centres, the opinions of people who are engaged in re-enactment and living history, and

on the curriculum for the Swedish upper level secondary school.

The three exercises (a role-play exercise, a lecture by an invited re-enactor, and a theme

week) have been analysed by four teachers who teach at upper level secondary school

and high school. They responded very positively to the exercises, and judged the

exercises to be fully viable in a classroom context. In conclusion, there are ways to

implement re-enactment and role-play in history education to make the teaching more

varied and interesting for the pupils. I argue that history is something you have to

experience if you are to understand its full extent.
