by Gustavsson, Daniel; Remmer, Loredana

Abstract (Summary)
Gender is a universal factor that is unavoidable in classroom interaction between pupils and teachers. The principle aim of this essay is to illustrate whether, during the interaction between pupil and teachers still occurs behavior that expresses a gender order. We also want to establish if the ones who attract attention from the teachers is the individual, or if teachers still on a subconscious or conscious level, think of the pupils gender and ascribes him or her some characteristics or qualities. Especially we want to bring out the pupils thoughts and sights of there is a difference on how teachers treat boys and girls. Another purpose we wanted to achieve was to illustrate how teachers work with the concept of equivalence between the sexes, according to Lpo94.Our essay is built on our studies around what teachers think on how they treat the pupils, on the basis of gender perspective. The study has also a more objective view that builds on observations. The parts of the essay that explores earlier studies and different developments, deal with the issues that affect our society and the schools purpose as a rear.Our results have point out to more conscious pedagogical methods that teachers have come to use in order to turn the traditional gender stereotype around. But we cannot fully ignore the gender issue because we are all part of it and we will always carry it with us as part of our culture.
