Abstract [en]

In my thesis “From Mother of Society to a Teacher for Younger Children prepared for new Research” (2008) the main question concerns central values and notions in a local pre-school teacher education regarding what is expected of a pre-school teacher under the 20th century. A key interest was how these underlying values and notions are maintained and how they are transformed over time in using James Wertsch (2002) “voices of collective remembering” as a tool.  A specific topic in the pre-school teacher education was from the years around 1960 – 1980, “child observation”. The topic changed over the years and my interpretation is that the topic functioned primarily as a measuring tool in order to legitimate the topic of child psychology. The consequences were that children were seen as individual objects worthy of scrutiny. From this view new questions rise: How can we understand documentation and observation of children in light of history and the Swedish preschool-tradition? In that historical light, I will use some video data from my earlier ethnographical study (Tellgren 2004) to observe and analyze a boy, five years old, in two different ways and from two different views. In the first view I have analyzed the boy using a traditional child-observations focuses on the individual child. In the other view I have focused the boy inside the interaction in his peer group using an interactional perspective in combination with conversation-analysis. The results from the two views will in this paper be compared and analysed.
