Historical consciousness in education (English)
Abstract [en]

In this study historical consciousness is the main object of interest. Historical consciousness has been described as a problematic didactical tool for teachers to use in the daily activity. The reason for it is because the concept is somewhat vague and there is no clear consensus for how to use it. However, in the Swedish guidelines for how teachers should work, history historical consciousness is mentioned as the purpose of all historical education. Because of the important role of this concept, this study tries to once more to evaluate how teachers work with the concept in their daily activity. What separates this study from previous ones is that it focusses on the aspects of historical consciousness instead of teachers understanding of the concept. Seven teachers where interviewed about how they teach history and their description was compared to a theoretical background regarding historical consciousness. The result showed that all teachers that participated in the study work with historical consciousness in some regard, some more than others. How teachers work with the concept is also described. The main conclusion of the study is that teachers that follow their national guidelines of the history subject tend to work with historical consciousness whether there are aware of it or not.
