Abstract [en]

The challenge for any teacher in physical education lies within being able to stimulate students who do no like physical activities or for some other reason decides not to participate. The aim of this study was to examine factors within physical education that could be the reason for students not participating and what could be done better in order to stimulate the less motivated. The study is based on interviews with ten students that went to school in two different counties. They did not consider their level of interest in sports to be influenced by their family or friends. They pointed out other factors that had been the reason for them failing Physical education. The results show that the students, mainly the girls, felt that the problem was within the corriculum, not in the syllabus. For the most part they wanted more variaty, strenght training and also a different kind of group formation. Girls also prefered more individual sports, such as different kinds of dances over too much ballgames. The students wanted the subject to teach them more about things they could benefit from in the future. The conclusion was that it would be good for the students to be divided into groups that have the same aims and interests, if possible. The teacher had a big responsibility as well as the time-schedules.
