How to get pupils to take an interest in biology (English)
Abstract [en]

From interviews with biology teachers and pupils, some important factors are presented that motivates and interests pupils in biology. Some of these are varied education, commitment of the teacher, narrative skill and individually reachable goals. Other important factors are practical application and connection to daily life, as well as actuality of the subject and pupils experience of the use of learning.

Circumstance around teacher and pupils will influence which factors that has the most impact. It´s up to each teacher to make a decision which factors to be used based on his or her own qualities and depending on the group they will teach.

Teachers and pupils agreed about factors that will cause an interesting lesson. The pupils emphasize that variation is the most important factor. Their experience is that many teachers have theoretical introductions that are too long.

Abstract [sv]

Utifrån intervjuer med biologilärare och elever presenteras ett antal punkter som viktiga, eller som grundförutsättningar, för att motivera och intressera elever för ämnet biologi. Några av dessa är varierad undervisning, lärarens engagemang och berättarförmåga samt individuella greppbara mål. Praktisk tillämpning och verklighetsanknytning, ämnets mediala aktualitet samt att eleverna upplever nytta av sitt lärande är andra exempel på viktiga faktorer.

Omständigheter runt lärare och elever påverkar vilka faktorer som spelar mest in. Detta måste varje pedagog känna av, beroende på egna egenskaper och elevmålgrupp.

Lärare och elever är eniga om vilka faktorer som är viktiga för att göra lektionen intressant. Eleverna betonar dock vikten av variation och menar att flertalet lärare har alltför långa teoretiska genomgångar.
