Abstract [en]

Crossing the cultural boundaries provides a fruitful setting for investigating the dynamic interplay between teachers and the applied curriculum materials. In this paper, we report on the initial analysis of interviews and meetings with eight Swedish primary teachers regarding using translated Finnish curriculum materials, i.e. a textbook and teacher guide, for the first year. All teachers had chosen to use the materials voluntarily. Our analysis shows that despite some consistent experiences concerning using the materials, their ways of designing lessons vary greatly in terms of selecting ideas from the materials to be realized in the classroom. Most of the teachers seem to rely on the Finnish teacher guides more than the Swedish ones. We elaborate on both similarities and differences in relation to the teachers’ experiences and the specific features of the current school context.
