Buddhism in school : A qualitative study of upper secondary pupils with and without Buddhist background (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur sexton gymnasieelever, varav sex elever har buddhistisk bakgrund, uppfattar undervisningen om buddhism på högstadiet. Stor vikt läggs på deras uppfattning på buddhism och vilket innehåll samt vilka metoder som har använts i undervisningen. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av gruppintervjuer och enskilda intervjuer. Elever med buddhistisk bakgrund upplever att de har lärt sig mer om buddhismens historia i religionsundervisningen men att det saknas fakta om högtider och traditioner. Elever utan buddhistisk bakgrund upplever att de har ingen kunskap om hur en lekman inom buddhism utövar sin tro och om det finns buddhistiska högtider. Utifrån elevernas upplevelser har deras lärare använt metoder såsom grupparbeten och genomgångar. Som viktigaste slutsats, kommer jag fram till en viss enformighet. Antagligen behövs det olika perspektiv beträffande läroböcker och filmer.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to investigate sixteen upper secondary pupils, of which six have Buddhist background, perceive the teaching of Buddhism in high school. Great emphasis is placed on their perception of Buddhism and the content as well as the methods used in teaching of Buddhism. The study was conducted using group interviews and individual interviews. The upper secondary pupils with a Buddhist background feel that they have learned more about the history of Buddhism in religious education in Sweden, but there is a lack of facts about Buddhist holidays and traditions though. The upper secondary pupils without a Buddhist background feel they don’t have knowledge of how a layman in Buddhism practice their faith and if there are Buddhist ceremonies. Based on the pupils' experiences, their teachers have used methods such as group work and presentations. As an important conclusion, I come to some degree of uniformity. Probably different perspectives on textbooks and films are needed.
