The Pictures in the Classroom : from a Gender Perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine what kind of pictures the children encounter everyday in their classroom. Furthermore, the idea was to immerse myself in how girls and boys are portrayed in these pictures from a gender perspective. Three question were set, to enable this study: 

  1. What kind of pictures will second grade pupils encounter in their classroom, in a city school and in a rural school?
  2. How many girls and boys are illustrated in these pictures?
  3. How are girls and boys portrayed in these pictures?

The examination was done by a field study of two classrooms, where all the pictures on the walls were documented using a digital camera. The collected material were examined, using both a quantitative analysis and a qualitative ditto. The first analysis is presented in tables, where it shows that there were a bigger different in how the gender were shown in the city school then in the rural school. The second analysis performed on the basis of three categories; glance, activity and attributes. The purpose of this method is to highlight any gender differences in how boys and girls are depicted. This essay concludes that the boys were in general portrayed more varied than the girls, even if the pictures in the city school showed more traditional stereotypical traits than the other. An interesting issue and a proposal for further research, is an examination of the thoughts and ideas the teachers have about choosing, and using pictures in the classroom.
