Ris, ris, jag vill bara ha ris!: En essä om den pedagogiska måltidens syfte
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay is about the pedagogical meal in preschool. In my essay I describe a dilemma where I, as a teacher felt stressed and insufficient as an educator at the lunch situation with the children in preschool.
I felt how the stress makes me unfocused. And I feel depressed knowing that what could be a peaceful moment aren’t the forum for learning as I know a pedagogical meal can be. In the essay I use relevant literature perspective on stress and how it influences the children and the teachers in a learning situation.
I will describe in what way a stressed meal has a negative effect on the children and me as a teacher. And how I, as an educator, can promote a positive learning situation and environment at lunch.
To get some perspective, I attended another school to observe the meal situation. The teachers have extensive professional experience, and are actively working to achieve a meal situation, in an non stressed environment suitable for learning. At the same school I also interviewed one of the teachers about her view on how a meal can become an environment for learning.
The curriculum 98/10 serves as guiding documents in preschool and is influenced by Vygotsky’s theory of language and interaction as a tool for development, therefore is his theories included in the essay to create a relevance to all active in preschool.
