    ”De vill kunna, men inte lära sig det”: Metoder och motivation i engelskundervisning2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this study is to see how English education can be practiced in the Swedish grades 4, 5 and 6. We are interested in seeing how different teachers in different schools work and what teaching methods they use. At the same time we want to see how the pupils’ needs and interests affect the choice of teaching method. We also want to study how the choice of method influences the pupils’ motivation in the English subject. Our question formulations are:

    • What methods do English teachers use in their teaching and how can they be practiced?

    • How do English teachers take every pupil’s individual needs in consideration when it comes to the choice of teaching method?

    • What effect does the choice of teaching method have on the pupils when it comes to their interest and motivation in the English subject? Do the teachers’ opinions about the pupils’ attitudes differ from the pupils’?

    To implement this study we have chosen to interview five English teachers in the Swedish grades 4-6 in the same commune in Sweden. To find out about the pupils’ motivation and interest in the subject we have done a questionnaire study in the classes where the respondents in the interview are teaching.

    The result shows that the teachers are similar when it comes to the choice of teaching method. All teachers have a communicative approach but are not particularly conversant in different methods. Instead they base their thoughts on the view of the curriculum and the syllabus. However, we can see that they in their teaching, have influences from the method Communicative Language Teaching. Due to the fact that the teachers do not use a specific method, our second question formulation was difficult to answer and instead we had to focus on how they implement individualization. The teachers and the pupils do not always have they same opinion about the motivation of the pupils. We discovered that a good classroom climate, high but reasonable demands and the use of more materials than the teaching aid have positive affects on the motivation.

    The challenge of mixed-ability classes: How should upper secondary English teachers work in order to help the weaker students?2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to find out how upper secondary English teachers should work in order to reach the weaker students. I am interested in what has been written about mixed-ability classes, the challenges they present and most of all how teachers of English need to work in such classes to reach all students, especially the weaker ones.

    I have also interviewed three upper secondary teachers about how they work to reach the weaker students in their classes.

    My findings are that, according to the teachers interviewed, the best way to deal with the problem is to bring back ability grouping. The literature I read mostly had negative views on this method and stressed the importance of differentiation and motivation instead. Both the literature and the teachers claimed that a good atmosphere, clear instructions, structure and setting routines were the most important factors when working with mixed ability classes.

    Det praktiska arbetet med ASL: Hur lärare och deras elever arbetar praktiskt med läs- och skrivmetoden att skriva sig till läsning2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis discusses the reading and writing method WTR (Writing Through Reading). The aim of the study is to research how WTR can be utilized in first and second grade. This aim is answered by the research questions: In what way are the teachers and pupils practicing the reading and writing method WTR? In what way do the teachers believe the learning of the pupils is affected by these methods? The thesis has been conducted with a sociocultural perspective as a theoretical foundation. The method was a quality research executed with an inductive approach. This was accomplished through interviews with teachers and observations of pupils. The result of the thesis showed that the teachers practiced WTR differently and used varied devices. Some used tablets and others used laptops. The pupils practiced both individual work and in pairs. In addition, the results show variation in the classroom context and in the teachers’ attitude to how their teaching affected their pupils.

    Filmens pedagogiska möjligheter i svenskundervisningen2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Our purpose with this thesis is to explore the pedagogical possibilities of using film in the Swedish subject in high school, mainly so by interviewing teachers working with a subject primarily concerning film analysis (Filmkunskap). We have worked with different issues as the most important is: Why is it important to use a wider text concept to a greater extent in the Swedish subject? The study was conducted with eight qualitative interviews with teachers in the Swedish subject and in the Filmkunskap subject at four different schools. A qualitative survey complements these interviews. The main results of this work is that the use of films differ in a number of points comparing the two examined subjects and it also seems as schools today generally have all the technical possibilities for using film in teaching.

    Teaching Writing in Upper Secondary School2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to investigate how writing is taught in upper secondary school as well as what kind of writing is taught, the teachers’ attitudes towards writing and how written production is assessed. I am interested to see if teachers use different methods both when it comes to teaching and grading writing.

    My research is based on recorded interviews with four upper secondary school teachers from two different schools. The teachers were interviewed on their planning, executing and grading of writing within English A and B. I have also carried out extensive reading of earlier research in order to get a complete background.

    The result shows that all four teachers believe that writing is an important part of language learning and they all enjoy teaching it. The main focus is put on the formal aspects of writing, in order to prepare students for the national tests. Only one of the four teachers feel that creative writing is the best way to learn a second language. All teachers go through the formal rules of writing with the entire class before giving them an assignment. The biggest difference between the different teachers is the marking and final grading of the written production, where one teacher does not grade assignments at all and another has developed her own scale.

    Firefighter or Fireman? Teachers’ attitudes towards gender neutrality in the foreign language classroom2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates the extent and significance of a gender decisive language in the foreign language classroom. Focus lies on teachers teaching English as a foreign language and their attitudes towards gender neutrality from a pure linguistic point of view.

    My starting point was previous research done concerning my topic and the survey was performed through questionnaires that were sent out with both qualitative and quantitative questions to thirty teachers.

     

    My findings indicate that the teachers contradict themselves when answering the questionnaire. Their knowledge of gender neutrality is surprisingly low, but they think they know more than they actually do. It is essential to teach more about gender decisive language in schools and at the Teachers’ Education to promote equality. Conclusions can be drawn that this is an issue not dealt with enough and that teachers seem to have a distorted image about their approach concerning gender neutrality.

    Jönköpingska ä gött!: En studie i jönköpingungdomars kunskap kring den egna dialekten2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates the knowledge about the dialect in Jönköping among youths in the same city. My aim is primarily to focus on their knowledge around words and expressions in the dialect of Jönköping. My method is both qualitative and quantitative and the survey was performed through questionnaires that were sent out to 50 students. In the questionnaires the students were asked to translate words from the dialect in Jönköping but also to freely speculate around the features in the dialect.

     

    My findings indicate that the knowledge around the students own dialect is very poor. Knowledge about the words and expressions that were used in my questionnaire were also poor but among those words that the students actually recognized many originated from the Romany language. Among the answers from the questionnaire there were 17 suggestions for other dialect words, different from the ones that were used in the questionnaire. Consequently the contemporaneity in certain literature that were used is questioned.

    Om språkbruk, generaliseringar och ett besvärligt material2014In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 39-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with narratives from northern Sweden about the Spanish flu pandemic (1918– 1920). There are about 50 narratives collected between ca. 1950 and 1980. All of them were elicited in interviews: some were told in interaction with two or more informants, some are told by one informant in interaction with the interviewer, and some are monologues. There are different interviewers. The interviews have not been planned or conducted in a systematic and consistent way, or with a purpose to investigate the informants’ experiences of the Spanish flu. Rather, the main purpose seems to have been to elicit stories about “the old days”. Drawing on linguistic choices from the material as a whole, this article discusses the informants’ notion of the pandemic and their conceptions of etiology. The article concludes that the most conspicuous feature is what is not mentioned by any informant, namely the word influenza. Further, the Spanish flu clearly belongs to a past era that has no resemblance to modern society. It was an era characterized by suffering, poor sanitary conditions and starvation. As well, the article briefly discusses the critique of medical humanities and the study of illness narratives for the lack of systematic analyses and syntheses of how these are constructed in general.

    I människan själv, eller utanför?: Föreställningar om pestens orsaker i lärda skrifter och folktro2015In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, Vol. 24, no 1, p. 11-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines how the causes of Black death were conceived and discussed in two distinct contexts; learned sources from late medieval England and oral Swedish legends that were collected and recorded many centuries aftr the outbreak. While focused on discussions of a particular disease - plague or what is known as the bacterium yersinia pestis - the geographical, chronological and material range enables a greater perspective upon the continuities and transitions of how theories of causality are framed.
