Four teachers of Arts-education, their statements and reasoning about the subject of Arts-education (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to bring forward four teachers of Arts-education, their statements and reasoning concerning the condition and meaning of the subject of Arts-education along with their statements in relation to theory and earlier research, give voice and insight in their intentions according to what teaching of Arts-education should contribute to.

The basis for the study is brought out of the dilemma that there, in the subject of Artseducation is “crowding of matter” in the nine-year compulsory school, difficulties in selecting the importance of various subjects and different opinions between teachers, due to curriculum being modified in accordance with the development in society. The earlier research that this study relates to shows how teacher’s opinion of different subjects varies. My questions concerning the subject are the following;

How do four teachers of Arts-education reason concerning the condition and meaning of the subject of Arts-education?

What are the teachers intentions according to what teaching of Arts-education should contribute to?

What are the similarities and differences between the statements of the teachers in this study versus the teachers' statements according to previous research?

To find answers on my issues and questions I have made interviews with four teachers of Arts-education and have then put their reasoning and statements against theories , which  all concerns the creative process. This study shows that these four teachers all have different opinions in how to educate, but not different opinions about what the results of  the subject should be and contribute to. Common to all four teachers is, out of their statements, more or less, it is possible to interpret discussion around the importance of the role of creativity for Arts-education. Three of the teachers also have a discussion in how they relate to modern society, similarities and differences, but also how they expand on a problematic issue. There are among the four teachers of Arts-education, in their reasoning, many similarities in what teachers according to earlier research, have said they value in the subject of Arts-education along with their intentions of education. There are also differences from earlier studies, and that is the fact that there are subtle distinctions in the discussion within the actual problem area. This could contribute with hypothetical knowledge to future research within the actual problem area. In statements from two of the teachers a new aspect arose, an aspect that has not been seen in earlier research, “way of thinking creative” and its meaning.
