Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Earlier this spring I was doing my teacher traniee where my main task was to teach religion to high school students. The classes which I was reponsible for and taught religion in were; Natural Science programme, Economics programme and Business- and administration programme. The latter national program is a practical eucational programme. In my preperation of my own lessons I realised I needed teaching material. I was advised, by a teacher at the school, to choose two different textbooks so that I would be able to accomodate different needs within the three groups. The accommodate was needed since I was told that the students who were part of the practical programme don´t like to read as much as the others, they would need a less advanced book. This discussion intrigued me and made me wonder ho textbooks are chosen to accommodate the different needs of all pupils. This essay will present a few problem areas that religions teachers have to deal with. Some of theses problem areas are; how do teachers choose textsbooks depending on the type of student group that religious teaching is taught in, is the textbook selection handled differently depending on whether the teaching is done in a practical programme, or a theoretical programme, in this case how? I decided to interview four high school teachers for this essay. The result gave me a broader knowledge about teachers difficulties during the text book selection process. All four respondents has several things in common but especially one thing. They all agree to the lack of time in religous education as a tremendous issue that shoud be discussed on a political level. Equivalent education is also discussed as a problem when it comes to the definition as the syllabus and curriculum does. The main question these teachers asks themselves is: How am I supposed to put equivalent education into practice?
