Abstract [en]

This thesis sets out to examine how teachers in RE reflect and respond to religious students' questions and statements about religion and violent religious extremism by interviewing three teachers workning in so called particularily deprived areas in the outskirts of Malmö, Göteborg and Stockholm. In these areas there have been several cases of citizens leaving the country to travel to areas of conflict and war, most recently to the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. With this “backdrop”, it is this study's aim to examine and explore what didactic strategies the teachers employ when engaging with religious, primarily muslim students within a secular, non confessional and compulsory RE. The study shows that the teachers' own religiosity and attitude towards the relationship between religion and secular society is crucial to their didactical approaches. This raises questions about what role the teacher plays in didactics, where a sole focus on the interplay between student and content/lesson material seems insufficient.
