Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project researches the conceptions and discourses that form the basis for why young adults choose the gymnasium (STX). We have researched these relations through a focus group interview, where we considered which conceptions the young adults had about the gymnasium, and how they discuss them with each other. In the project we include theory about the culture surrounding young adults by Thomas Ziehe, and theory about the development of education by Ove Pedersen and Henning Salling Olesen. Additionally, we will include past scientific research by theorists Mette Pless, Noemi Katznelson, Camilla Hutters and Lene Larsen. With these theory we have analyzed our focus group interview. We have created this analysis based on Norman Fairclough’s critical discourse analysis. During the analysis of our focus group interview we discover the various conceptions and discourses that affect the young adults’ choice of the gymnasium (STX). The young adults particularly highlight the parties, their families, social life, hard work and the educational possibilities in the future.
