Abstract
The aim of this paper is to investigate the attitudes of 4 instrumental teachers towards giving praise and speaking highly of their pupils.

In addition, the teachers stress the importance of where, when, and how praise is used in the learning process: effort, development, and... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med detta examensarbete är att undersöka attityder hos 4 instrumentallärare kring att ge beröm till sina elever. Lärarna har intervjuats om vad de har för tankar kring att ge beröm. Som utgångspunkt för varje intervju ligger dokumentation och observation av ett lektionstillfälle med fokus på beröm.
Resultatet visar att instrumentallärarna tycker det är viktigt att berömma sina elever. De är skeptiska till en tyst och kritisk lärare och menar att beröm skapar god stämning och hjälper eleverna till ett bättre självförtroende. Lärarna beskriver också att det är viktigt när och hur de berömmer sina elever. Ansträngning, utveckling och process ska synliggöras med beröm. Det är också viktigt att eleverna vet vad de får beröm för
