Abstract [en]

The purpose with this examine was to study the teachers perception of leadership in the classroom and also how they experience the conditions of this. The method used was qualitative, and builds on a total of six interviews. Stensmos five leadership tasks in the classroom that constitute leadership context have provided the theoretical basis of this study. The leadership tasks have therefore been used as theoretical tools in this study to analyze the teachers’ reasoning about their own leadership style. In general, results showed that the teachers talk about dissimilar qualities within different kinds of leadership tasks which results in different consequences and effects on the pupils, the teaching and on the teacher leadership in the classroom. The study also shows that some teachers reason about leadership styles in a way that I would like to call autocratic situational leadership and democratic situational leadership. The concept is based on the finding that teachers who advocate the application of an autocratic leadership style express the standpoint that it is the circumstances and the situation in the classroom that demands this kind of leadership style. This is the reason why teachers interpret the autocratic leadership style as an application of a situation related leadership. The teachers that articulate a democratic approach also express the necessity to adapt their leadership style to the level of the pupils and thereby the teachers interpret the democratic leadership style to be situational leadership as well.
