Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftsartikelForskningpeer review


Relations between science teachers’ corporeal performances and their statements regarding these actions are discussed. Dispositions of truthfulness are applied to grasp the personal nuances in these relations. Three teachers’ corporeal performances and truthfulness are analysed. Diana shows effort, sincerity and trustworthiness in dealing with classroom management. Jane shows effort, fidelity and honesty in developing outdoor teaching. Simon shows transparency, objectivity and sincerity in his support of colleagues.
By addressing the relations in the vocabulary of truthfulness the teachers in this
study appear as professionals with personal dedication towards improvement of specific activities in a science teacher’s work and teaching.
