Abstract [en]

This project investigates how teachers in the Swedish Music and Culture school are positioning themselves, how they construct their students and the teaching conditions. In this paper I will present the preliminary results of group conversations with teachers from six schools and discuss the findings in relation to theories of modernity. All together 27 teachers in music (instrumental teaching), drama, media (photo and film), dance and art were participating. On empirical level three different themes concerning teachers’ talk about changed attitudes among students are found, which have implications for teaching strategies. In the first theme, The Change, the teachers’ descriptions explain how the change of attitudes among the students have had an impact on teaching methods. Here, teaching “like before” is expressed as something impossible because “the students of today are different”. In the second theme, The Frustration, the teachers articulate a frustration about why the students do not behave like before. Here, the teachers talk about a change among the students, but they have not changed their teaching methods. Instead they express a frustration concerning the changed conditions. In the third theme, The Wish, the teachers also talk about a change. In doing this, stories about what could be different in teaching are discussed. These results express a discursive fracture concerning the performance of teachers’ profession all related to the different behaviour of the students. In the discussion of the findings in relation to theories of modernity concepts like detraditionalization, esthetization of everyday life and mass consumption are used in an attempt to explain why this breakage in the Swedish Music and Culture schools has taken place.
