Sammanfattning

Titel: Gymnasieelevers perspektiv på deras hälsa och motivation i skolmiljö

Författare: Sofia Jovannelli

Handledare: Monica Naeser

Syftet med uppsatsen var att få en djupare förståelse av hur gymnasieelevers perspektiv är på deras hälsa och motivation.

Vilka olika faktorer anser eleverna påverkar deras hälsa och motivation i deras skolmiljö?

Genom kvalitativa intervjuer med sex gymnasieelever undersöktes deras perspektiv på hälsa och motivation.

För att ge mer fakta och teorier om uppsatsens frågeställningar studerades även tidigare forskning.

Studiens centrala tolkningsram är teorin om KASAM, teori om motivation, läroplanen samt tidigare forskning i ämnesområdet.

I uppsatsen har framkommit att människors hälsa påverkas både positivt och negativt under skoltiden, men att alla elever trots att de ibland upplever skolmiljön som problematisk t.ex på grund av stress, bibehåller en vilja att fortsätta sina studier.

Intervjuerna visar att de intervjuade eleverna är nöjda med sin tid på gymnasiet.

Intervjuerna stämmer överens med tidigare teorier om hälsa och motivation då det genom intervjuerna visat sig att en förutsättning för psykiskt välbefinnande och en positiv utveckling är att man lever i ett begripligt sammanhang, med lagom anpassade krav och med möjlighet att påverka situationen.

Abstract

Title: A-Level students’ perspective on their own health and motivation in their college environment.

Author : Sofia Jovannelli

Supervisor : Monica Naeser

The purpose of this essay was to gain a deeper understanding of how A-level students perspective is on their own health and motivation.

Which different factors does the A-Level students´ consider affect their own health and motivation in their college environment?

Through the use of qualitative interviews with six A-level students their view on their own health and motivation was investigated.

To gain a deeper factual and theoretical basis to the research questions, I also investigated some earlier studies.

The central frame of interpretation of this study is the theory about KASAM, and earlier research in this field.

In the writing of this essay it has emerged that the people´s health is influenced in both a positive and a negative way during their school years depending on factors such for example stress related to school work.

It has emerged in the interview process that students view their college time and their college work as meaningful despite the stress some of the students can feel..

Furthermore the interviews have shown that all whom were interviewed were satisfied with their time at A-level college on the whole.

This research’s findings directly matches those of the earlier studies about health and motivation, as the interviews show that a predisposition for psychological well-being and a positive development is that you live in a comprehensible environment with appropriate demands on the students, and the possibility to influence one’s own situation.
