School is a preparation for pupils’ active participation in society. According to the school curriculum (Lpf 94) every pupil should be able to influence, take responsibility and participate in the schools educational programme. In order to do this there has to be a good communication between the teachers and pupils in the classroom. (Maltén 1995:210) The aim of this observational study was to describe and analyze communication between the teacher and pupils in the classroom. The study was conducted by observing five teachers and twenty two pupils in one class, in the classroom. The results suggest that even though there was enough pupil participation in active learning, there was not enough pupil participation in the planning of the lessons.
