Att se sig själv som en del i ett större perspektiv : En analys av skolämnet historia i Lgr 69, Lgr 80 och Lpo 94.
In this essay, I intent to examine history as a school subject in Swedish compulsory school (for children aged 7-16), it contains mostly an analysis of the syllabus for history in the three latest curriculums Lgr 69, Lgr 80 and Lpo 94. The main purpose of the essay is to illuminate the development and the change history as a subject has gone through during this specific time, and my will is also to illustrate the view on knowledge and learning that is revealed in the syllabus for history in today’s curriculum (Lpo 94).The survey shows that in Swedish compulsory school, history as a subject has changed significantly. During the examined years, the contents have been exceptionally broadened and that has lead to increasing demands on the students as it has gone from being directed to the individual and its contiguous history with shorter outlooks on the rest of the world, to requiring the individual to be able to see and understand other parts of the world and different time, on the basis of it’s own history and culture. According to my survey, this has lead to problems in the students learning ability. The curriculum as it is presented today demands a deeper kind of knowledge than one can expect from all students since far from all have the capacity to reach this sort of deeper knowledge.
