It´s about participation : Some special school teachers’ constructions of student participation in mathematics (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att belysa några grundsärskolelärares konstruktioner av elevers

delaktighet i ämnet matematik. För att kunna belysa lärares konstruktioner har jag genomfört

kvalitativa gruppintervjuer med lärare, inom grundsärskolans olika stadier, som alla undervisar

i ämnet. Jag har genom intervjuerna tagit del av lärarnas gemensamma beskrivningar och sedan

analyserat dem ur ett socialkonstruktionistiskt perspektiv. Utifrån de intervjuade lärarnas

konstruktioner handlar elevers egna önskemål om delaktighet i matematikämnet främst om

tillgång till digitala verktyg i form av Ipads och här beskrivs elever som skickliga användare.

Hinder för delaktighet däremot kan handla om elevers okunskap om hur man gör sig delaktig

emedan möjlighet till delaktighet kan handla om att läraren är positivt inställd till ämnet. En

matematikundervisning som är nivåanpassad och variationsrik och som präglas av lyhördhet

och prestigelöshet kan inverka gynnsamt på elevers möjligheter att vara delaktiga. Variationer

mellan stadier handlar bland annat om graden av initiativförmåga som tenderar att öka med

stigande ålder men även om elevers förståelse av ämnet som blir mer tydligt ju äldre eleverna

blir. Min förhoppning är att denna studie kan bidra till ökad förståelse för hur viktig lärarrollen

är för grundsärskoleelevers möjligheter att bli delaktiga i matematikundervisningen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to describe the constructions of student participation in mathematics

made by some special school teachers. In order to obtain teachers' constructions of student

participation in mathematics I conducted qualitative group interviews with teachers in

special schools from different stages, each of which teaches the subject. Through the interviews

I have been able to take part of the teachers’ common descriptions and I have analyzed

these from a social constructionist perspective. Based on teachers’ constructions is students'

own preferences about participation in mathematics mainly for access to digital tools as Ipads

and the teachers describes students as skilled users. The picture of what can prevent participation

include students' lack of knowledge about how to do their part. On the contrary if the

teacher has a positive attitude towards mathematics opportunities for participation might be

given. Mathematics teaching, if graded and varied and if characterized by sensitivity and modesty,

have a positive impact on pupils' opportunities to be involved. Variations between stages

include the degree of initiative that tends to increase with age but also students' understanding

of the subject that becomes more evident the older the students are. My hope is

that this study can contribute to greater understanding of how important the teachers role is

for special school students’ opportunities to become involved in the teaching of mathematics.
