    Abstract [en]

    Summary

    Aim and research questions

    The purpose of the study is to examine how physical education (PE) teachers can work to increase young people’s interest in physical education but also physical activity in general.

    - How can PE teachers work to increase student’s interest in physical activity?

    - Does PE teachers believe that the student’s interest for sports is achieved according to the educations curriculum and in that case, how?

    - What problems can PE teachers encounter in their efforts to get young people motivated for physical activities during PE classes?

    Method

    Prior to implementation of the study i reviewed on a lot of past research and got interested about the problem with unmotivated students. After this I looked for different theories that I could use for my study and settled with the KASAM theory by Aaron Antonovsky. The method applied in this study was a qualitative interview method. The aim was to find out how teachers work to motivate their students to be physically active and wanting to participate in PE classes. The interview was made with five different PE teachers who worked with students at high school. After having collected and transcribed all data the study’s aim and questions could be answered. 

    Results

    The interviews made shows that teachers in schools often work with motivating their students, but it doesn’t seem like an easy task. Building a good relationship to all students in a class was something that the teachers thought were important factors getting the students more motivated and having a better attitude towards PE. A well-formed lesson with various activities and variation was considered to be important. There should also be a range of levels and options during one lesson so that all students at times could be successful. In this way students find something that suits them and they get motivated.

    Conclusion

    Working with motivating students is a core element out in the schools and the teachers carry a huge social responsibility to ensure that more students want to be physically active in physical education but also seen from a lifetime perspective
