This article inve stigates the concept of reproduction in relation to teacher education and teaching practice in the early 1920th. Working with a unique source material consisting of teacher exam essays, and teacher students note books written during classroom auscultation, it will be shown how certain ideals were reproduced, first from the teacher seminar to the teacher students, then over to their students by for example the use of questioning the homework. One teacher student in the investigated classes, the author to be, Karin Boye, illustrates some personal and generic dilemmas in this reproduction process, both in first hand sources and in her later reflections over her year at the teacher seminar.
