by Danielsson, Anna

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this essay is to find out how gender upholds in a classroom, both by students as well as the teacher. The procedure has been to observe the relationship between students and also the teachers. The observations is analysed according to theories of gender and a discussion about why gender is maintained follows. The conclusion of the result is that gender is being preserved in different ways, but also the contrary – students and the teacher oppose it. The students maintain the conception about boys being takers of spatial and verbal area whereas girls many times get in the background due to the competion in the classroom. Gender is also preserved by students true the norm always being pointed out. The teacher mainly conserves the conception about boys and their verbal and central spatial place in the classroom that their behaviour gives them, in the same time the conception about girls being silence, nice and helpful is maintained. At the same time as gender is being conserved there are examples of the contrary where girls for example oppose the idea of the silence, nice and helpful girl or where the masculine and the feminine picture gets dualistic.
