Sammanfattning (abstract):
Conflicts are part of daily school life and often dealt with by teachers. To some extent, democratic societies have encouraged vibrant dialogue in education settings that can lead to heated discussions or avoidance of rules. Our focus is on conflicts that can be negotiated or dealt with through third-party intervention and have not yet escalated. We will present a phenomenographic study on primary schoolteachers’ understanding of emerging conflicts. The interviews had a semi-structured character and questions were formulated around two conflict scenarios that were specifically developed and piloted to describe the phenomenon. Purposive sampling has been used to recruit four public primary schools in the area of Gothenburg and Umeå. From these schools, twenty teachers were interviewed during about an hour. All interviews have been audio recorded and transcribed verbatim. January 2016, the research team started their analyses. The first recursive readings have been conducted and the analytic process will be finalized during the spring 2016. Preliminary insights indicate that teachers understand emerging conflict in several different ways, one of them as an expected part of their daily professional work no matter what happened, another as a threat to the agenda, another one being as a threat to expectations.
