TRANSGENDER OR ACCORDING TO NORM? : How gender roles shows in childrens’ free play in preschool (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersöker om, och i sådana fall på vilket sätt, traditionella könsroller kommer till uttryck i den fria leken i förskolan. 

Detta syfte analyseras utifrån två frågeställningar vilka är: 

* Vilka skillnader i val av aktiviteter finns mellan pojkar och flickor?

* På vilket sätt ger barnen uttryck för de traditionella könsrollerna i leken? 

 Studien genomfördes i förskolans fria lek. Barnens val av rum skedde genom turordning och det barn som fick välja rum först hade fler valmöjligheter jämfört med det barn som fick välja sist.

Som metod för datainsamling användes videoobservationer vid en förskola där etablerad kontakt mellan barn och observatör redan fanns. Totalt deltog 11 barn i åldrarna fyra till fem i studien.

Resultatet av studien visar på att barnen agerade ungefär lika ofta enligt normer för traditionella könsroller, som de agerade könsöverskridande. Detta genom både val av lek och hur de agerade i leken. 

Uppsatsen skrevs som en del under lärarutbildningen och kan bistå med att väcka lärares funderingar kring barns olika könsroller. Detta genom att diskutera könsroller och hur dessa skildras i barnens fria lek.

Abstract [en]

This study is based on social learning theory and intends to examine whether, and if so how, the traditional gender roles are expressed in the free play in preschool.

This purpose is analyzed based on two issues which are:

* How does boys and girls play during the free play in preschool? Are there any differences between the type of games they have chosen?

* Will the traditional gender roles be expressed in boys’ and girls’ free play? How?

The study was conducted in the preschool free play. Children’s choice of room was done by an activity board where the children who got to choose the room first had more choices as compared to the children who may choose last.

Video observations were used as the method of data collection in the study. The observations were made at a preschool where established contact between the children and the observer already existed.

The result of the study show that the children acted about as often under the standards of traditional gender roles, they acted as transgender. This, by both choice of play and the way they acted in the play.

The essay was written as a part in my teacher education and it can contribute to arouse teachers to reflect about different gender roles in preschool. This by discussing gender roles and how they are portrayed in children’s’ free play.
