Abstract [en]

The aim of the thesis was to study teachers and students in primary schools thoughts on the use of the students popular culture in religious education, and to identify similarities and differences between the interviewed and how these could be understood. The purpose was further to examine what consequences popular culture’s relation to high culture (finkultur) was given in the interviewed’s reasoning.

The thesis was divided into three major issues: What opportunities and difficulties do teachers and students regard with the use of the students popular culture in religious education? What are the differences and similarities between the respondents, and how could this be understood? And the third: What are the consequences of popular culture's relation to high culture in the reasoning?

In order to achieve the questionaries, four students in ninth grade and four religious teachers in primary school were interviewed.

The result showed that both teachers and students stressed student’s popular culture as an educational opportunity. The use of popular culture contributes a higher level of interest, commitment and happiness in religious education. The teacher provided to a greater extent the difficulties with the use of the students popular culture, mainly with their lack of time and knowledge about their student’s popular consumption. Popular culture’s relation to high culture was made visible. In the teachers interviews it’s relation was revealed in their negative attitude against the students popular culture, in for example it’s lack of good values which were not considered compatible with the school’s values. In the student’s reasoning popular cultures relation to high culture became visible with their expressed concern about the popular culture which is used in their spare time, be used in a context which they were not used to.
