Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research has been to find out whether and how teachers stimulate and motivate well achievers in the elementary school to reach a higher level. To gather information I visited two different schools within the same county in Stockholm and on each school I met and interviewed with two teachers. The answers received from these interviews are presented in this study as my results. I found that the teachers feel that students that do well in the classroom many times work as role models for the other students. Often these students require extra material as they usually finish their workload ahead of others. The extra material has two purposes. On one hand the purpose is to help the children reach a higher academic level while on the hand the extra material is used as a distraction to keep the children busy. The seating arrangement in the classroom and ways of grouping the students is also tools to use for teachers to face all kind of children in school. The teachers often feel that the lack of time often forbid them to spend more time with each student. They also feel that the students that do well in school are the ones who suffer when they are the ones to receive the least amount of time as well as attention. To make all students develop equally on their individual levels it is necessary, according to the teachers interviewed, that the teachers find time for all students in the classroom. A lack of recourses always seem to be a problem in the school system but if the organization is well planed and the classrooms and the material is up to date this could help teachers spending their time on their students rather than the organization. In my opinion the teachers are ability to help all their students as well as the group constellation are crucial factors on how well students perform in school. Which seem to be a fact for all students, not only for the well achieving students.
