Teacher views with regards to democratic teaching and their position of power within the teaching situation (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to examine how teachers experience their possibilities to develop democratic teaching in high school and how they reflect upon their position of power within the teaching situation. Four professional high school teachers have been interviewed for the study. The theoretical perspective of the study is an intersectional view on power and a view on democratic teaching which is partly built on the high school curriculum, but mainly defined by deliberative conversations, anti-oppressive education and norm-critical education. The result of the study is focused on three themes, which were shown in the analysis of the interviews. These themes are: choices of teaching content,  authority of the teacher and democratic teaching. The conclusion of the study is that there is no fixed manual or one single method, for democratic teaching. However, if possibilites are created through educational politics, teacher tranining, existing norms at the school, and individual teachers ability to reflect upon their own position of power, democratic and anti-oppressive education is possible.
