Abstract [en]

The aim is to illustrate a didactical reflection tool that facilitates teachers’ critical discussions about teaching for children’s person-formation in preschool. Person-formation, as an aim described to education, takes form as identification and as subjectification (Håkansson et al. 2018). Previous Early Childhood Education research shows the importance of teaching approaches that strive toward children’s identification; autonomy, solidarity and socialization (Correja et al. 2017; see also Klaar and Öhman 2014). However, approaches aiming at subjectification is less emphasized. A reflection tool that highlights teaching for identification has previously been developed and used (see Klaar et al. 2020). Adding subjectification as a second concept connects theoretically to Biesta’s (2019) argument for subjectification and uniqueness in education (see also Van Poeck and Östman 2019). Previously conducted qualitative interviews with teachers and children (Klaar et al. 2020) are re-analyzed by using subjectification as an additional analyzing concept. This provides extended opportunities to analyze teachers’ and children’s utterances about play in a more multi-dimensional way. The teachers and the parents agreed to participation and recording of the interviews, by giving written consent. The children were also asked orally before the interview started. The initial result shows children’s confidence, strength and ability to make unique playmate choices and to refrain to take part. However, the teachers mainly talk about children’s ability and possibility to play. This reflection tool will give teachers the opportunity to discuss the interplay between expectations about being autonomous and social, and the possibility for the child to be unique and develop subjectivity.
