What does the teacher value in environmental education? : A qualitative study about how middle school teachers describe their environmental education (English)
Abstract [sv]

Hållbar utveckling är idag ett aktuellt begrepp, men vad betyder det egentligen för undervisningen? Miljöundervisningen i sig är inget eget ämne, utan ska ses som en övergripande del i all undervisning. Följande kvalitativa studie undersöker hur fem grundlärare i årskurserna 4–6, som undervisar inom de naturorienterande ämnena, beskriver sin miljöundervisning, samt vad de värderar mest inom området. Genom semistrukturerade intervjuer har lärarna fått berätta om sin undervisning. Studien har ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv och använt en innehållsanalytisk metod. I resultatet framkom det att samtliga lärare arbetar med flera teoretiska och praktiska delar i undervisningen. Vad som är gemensamt för samtliga deltagare är att litteratur samt film och media används i miljöundervisningen. Även samtalet ses som en viktig del i undervisningen, då eleverna får lyfta fram sina egna tankar och idéer.

Abstract [en]

Sustainable development is a topical term, but how does it affect the teaching? In Sweden, environmental education is not a school subject. Instead, it shall be seen as an overall topic. This qualitative study includes five middle school teachers, who educate in science, and investigates how they describe and what they value most in their environmental education. The teachers have answered questions based on semi-structured interviews. This study has been inspired by a hermeneutic perspective and applies a content analysis method. It appears that all teachers work with several theoretical and practical elements. What’s common for all participants is that literature, film and media are used in their environmental education. Discussions is also seen as an important part of teaching, as students can highlight their own thoughts and ideas.
