PE teachers view of knowledge and status in physical education (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine how some individual PE teachers view knowledge and what they think about the status of physical education whitin the school. The method used in this examination was both sudies of literature and a qualitative investigation. Six PE teachers, from three diffrent schools in Sweden, were interviwed from a phenomentographic research approach. I made the analysis from a sociocultural approach. The result indicates that th teachers had difficulties to describethe conception of knowledge, but that the pupils/students achieve knowledge in physical education. Many of the teachers' thoughts of knowledge can be described with the sociocultural approach. The teachers also think that the status of physical education is high among the pupils/students if they view it from an entertaining perspective, but the school subject achieves a lower status if they see it from an educational perspective.
