Abstract [en]

This article is about Abrahams Children foundation and its teaching method called IE- method. It’s about how a teacher can use the IE- method in the religion lesson. There were some questions in this article that had to be answered and the questions are:

- How is the form of the religion classes when a teacher uses the IE- method?

- What happens in the class when you study the interaction and the communication?

- Does the student’s participation increase when they work with the IE- method?

- What are the advantage and the disadvantage with the IE- method?

- Can the teacher use the IE- method in other classes?

To get to the “correct” answer I used many methods like, observation in the class, qualitative interview with the teacher (Lisa Andersson) and with four students (Kim, Erik, Amanda, Patrik) and I also used questionnaire. I studied some books that are about the IE- method. I studied even some articles about the IE- method. I took help from Hjalmar Sundén’s part theori.

The lessons begin with a teacher who is reading one story and then the children have to decide with character they want to write about and when they have wrote a text in an I- form they have to present their texts to everybody in the class.

The study showed that the children is having very fun with the IE- method and they like to study with this method because when they write their texts there is no right or wrong. That is because they are writing about their feelings and thoughts and no one can say that they have wrong thoughts. The teacher and the children feel that the have grown because when they are writing their texts and then have to argue about their opinion they write better texts.

Because the children have to argue about their opinion the interaction and the communication in the class is better. They all want to be heard from the other student’s and they all listen to each other. And because they are writing about their feelings everybody in the class participates.

The advantage with the IE- method is that it includes everybody and by that I mean that IE- method includes the biggest religions and most of the children have those religions and they are interested to find out more. The disadvantage with the IE- method is that it’s a complement to other theoretic methods and a teacher can not use the IE- method only. The other disadvantage is that sometimes the teacher forgets to talk about the differences between these religions because she is too cut up with the similarities.

A teacher can use the IE- method in other lessons like for example she can use it in a English lesson. She can correct the grammar in the texts and the language in the texts and when the children are arguing about their opinions.
