Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine how some Swedish teachers use film and movies as a

resource when they teach religious studies in upper secondary school. Three questions were

created to define the main focus of the thesis namely how the teachers perceived how they used

film, how they justified there use and which advantages and disadvantages they see with using

film in their teaching. To be able to answer them correctly the empirical data was collected by

two methods; a survey and three interviews. The empirical data was then related to previous

research in the same field.

The thesis concludes that the teachers use film in the classroom in many ways, including as a way

to present facts about religions to the students and as a way to make it easier to understand

difficult parts of the subject. They also use film as way to make the students better at

understanding and discussing different perspectives of religion and ethics. The main

disadvantages film has is that it take a lot of time to show a film and use it in a meaningful way.

The teachers also sometimes finds it hard to find a film that suits the purpose of showing it.
