Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay was to survey the students’ interest for the past; in order to create new method tools for the teaching of history in today’s school. From this purpose, this question emerged: What kind of aspects affect the students’ interest for the past. How do these aspects promote the students’ historical consciousness? Are these aspects opportunities or holdbacks for the teaching of history’s purpose to develop the students’ historical consciousness? Interviews were conducted and from these five different categories were created: the past in everyday-life, interest for the past, acquisition of knowledge, how the past affects and the interest for history in school. These five categories were analyzed by using the concept and theory of historical consciousness. The result was that elder relatives and parents belong to the biggest factors, as well as the teaching of history in school. However, the crucial factor was whether the students could at all relate to the past. Furthermore, the interviewed students have a historical consciousness; however, it is flawed due to the fact that they do not see history as a whole.
