Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine if there are any differences or similarities when it comes to teaching religion in a multicultural school versus teaching religion in a homogeneous school in Sweden. How do teachers describe religious education in schools and how do they justify their teaching strategies? What similarities or differences are there between teachers' approaches when teaching religion in homogeneous versus multicultural schools?The study is based on qualitative interviews which includes a total of four schools; two homogeneous and two multicultural. These schools have been selected with the help of the Migration Board's annual report from 2014 as well as from my own personal knowledge. One religious teacher from each of the schools was interviewed.The conclusion, among others, is that ethnic Swedish pupils do not have the same understanding of religion as students of different ethnicity. It also proved that by having students with a different culture to the Swedish talk about their traditions and religion developed a greater understanding among all students.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete har varit att undersöka huruvida det är några skillnader eller likheter med att undervisa om religioner på en mångkulturell respektive homogen skola i Sverige. Hur beskriver lärarna undervisningen om religioner i skolan och hur motiverar de sina undervisningsstrategier? Vilka likheter eller skillnader finns mellan lärarnas syn på undervisning om religioner i homogena respektive mångkulturella skolor?Undersökningen baseras på kvalitativa intervjuer där sammanlagt fyra skolor är med i studien, två homogena samt två mångkulturella. Dessa skolor har valts ut med hjälp av Migrationsverkets årsrapport från 2014 samt personlig kännedom. En religionslärare från vardera skola har intervjuats.Slutsatserna blev bland annat att de etniskt svenska eleverna inte hade en förståelse för religion på samma sätt som eleverna med annan etnicitet. Det visade sig också att en större förståelse utvecklades bland alla elever genom att låta elever med annan kultur än den svenska berätta om sina traditioner och religion.
