(Swedish)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The aim of this study is to contribute with knowledge about students’ views on integrated science teaching. The study is a part of a larger study about integrated science teaching in lower secondary school, grade 9. The analysis is based on data collected from group-interviews with students, student questionnaire and classroom observations. According to the students’ experience the content chosen are more important for creating interest than the teaching organisation. The students’ experience about integrated science teaching are influenced by teaching organization, content, the teacher, the students’ own work effort and if the knowledge are connected to everyday-life and useful. It is more important that teaching is connected to everyday-life and deals with useful knowledge, than if it is integrated or not. Overall the girls appreciate the integrated science teaching more than boys. The boys find it more exhausting to work with integrated science and also believe they get less concept knowledge with integrated science teaching.
