Social studies education in ethnically diverse classrooms

The present paper will discuss preliminary findings from an ongoing doctoral project. The project investigates how social studies education can be accomplished and how it is understood by teachers and students in ethnically diverse classrooms. The study focuses on questions about content, controversial and emotive topics.
The preliminary findings discussed in this paper stem from classroom observations and video-stimulated interviews with pupils and teachers at two upper secondary schools in the south of Sweden.
The project analyses changes in social studies education and aims to initiate a discussion that reaches beyond the national perspective. Hence, this paper will also give a brief contrast of social studies education in Sweden and Germany. The study analyses similarities in the process of adapting education to major changes in society, but also differences related to the national and cultural context, e.g. the understanding and organization of the education.
