In times with new aims, curricula and syllabuses the teachers have to change their old procedures and thinking about their subject. But how do teachers change, how do they  experience and realise their own teaching? A way to research and to change is to do developmental work within the school. This is what this article deals with in an overall frame for research.

The study was carried out in 2 classes and with 2 different teachers. First year has concentrated on preliminary observations, interviews and discussions with the teachers and pupils the second year changes, observations and interviews. Third year text book for the school was developed, and a teacher guide.
