Begreppet energi i mellanstadiet: Beskrivning i svenska läroböcker
2019 (Swedish)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesisAlternative title
The concept of energy in grade 4-6 science : and its description in Swedish textbooks (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie gjordes för att få mer kunskap om hur området energi behandlas i svenska läroböcker i NO för mellanstadiet. Teorin utgår från tidigare forskning om olika aspekter av undervisning och lärande om energi, samt om olika kunskapsemfaser i undervisningen. Studien är således en deduktiv läromedelsanalys. Resultatet visar att det abstrakta begreppet energi vanligen beskrivs genom metaforer, vilka används för att underlätta steget mellan vardagliga föreställningar och vetenskapliga begrepp. En sak som också framgår är att läroböckerna utöver faktakunskaper även tar upp sådant som naturvetenskapens vägar till kunskap och dess plats i samhället.

Abstract [en]

This study was conducted in order to get more knowledge about how the area of energy is treated in Swedish science textbooks for grades 4-6. The theory is based on previous research on different aspects of teaching and learning about energy and different curriculum emphases in education. The study is, therefore, a deductive analysis of teaching material. The result shows that the abstract concept energy is often described through metaphors, which are used to facilitate the step between everyday conceptions and scientific concepts. Apart from targeting factual knowledge, the textbooks also bring up themes like the process of how scientific knowledge is formed, and the role of science in society.
