A study of the teacher’s awareness of gender (English)
Abstract [en]

The law of 2006 about Equal treatment, has been put in place to stop discrimination of students, example based on their gender. The law has an important function to increase the equality of opportunity between girls and boys in school. Therefore the teacher has an imported roll for raising the equality of opportunity between girls and boys in school. That’s why it’s imported to work gender awareness. The purpose of this paper is to examine the teacher’s awareness of gender. This has been accomplished by describing the teacher’s gender awareness through their teaching. In this study the equity feminism and the gender feminism perspectives will be used to get the two different perspectives way’s to see and apprehend gender. These two different perspectives will be used as our instrument to analyse the teacher’s gender awareness. The methods implemented in this study, are interviews with open questions and a questionnaire. The conclusion shows that the teachers own self understanding about gender awareness is very important in the contributing part in the creation of stereo typical gender rolls, which can prevent the student’s individual progression. From an equity feminism perspective shall the teachers look threw an individual perspective and not from their gender. The teachers shall see similarities between girls and boys, to raise equality of opportunity between girls and boys in school. In comparison to gender feminism doses it exist biological differences between girls and boys. Therefore shall the teachers observe the difference, to raise equality of opportunity between girls and boys in school.
