Abstract [en]

Our essay is about the function of the assembly in today`s preschool and the educator's role in it, and assembly a forum for learning situations, with the often different and complex conditions that exist in our preschool today. The purpose of this essay is to understand, explain and adapt different methods that we have learned through reflection about the function of the assembly and the educational role of the preschool teacher. In this essay, it is presented regarding assembly as a phenomenon and how we have considered it from a historical, social constructivist and socio culturally perspective. You will find two different assembly situations that become two different examples of the complexity that can occur in today's preschool. Through these two different stories, you can also share the author's feelings of inadequacy. The intention had been to highlight new perspectives and explanations as to how it can be that the assembly still has such a significant role in the profession and why we educators identify ourselves based on how well we are to hold an assembly. Furthermore, we highlight various issues that deal with the role of the preschool teacher in relation to the assembly. The question we have asked ourselves are: How can we use the assembly as a platform for educational learning so that it becomes meaningful for all the children in the group? Which function has the assembly in today's preschool activities? In our writing we have used hermeneutic research as a method and through it we could create a dialog with theoretical reflection. We reflect on whether it is possible to create learning situations where all the children are included. We conclude that it is possible to to perform assembly where we can include all the children, when we work based on a situation-adapted approach, where we adapt the assembly to the children`s differences and needs. We look at how the interaction and communication form the basis of learning from a social constructivist perspective. We raise these questions in order to approach the issue of assembly and our educational role, our assignment based on the curriculum, in a new light and from new perspectives.
