Providing students with reading comprehension strategie : A study about teachers' work with material from A reading class (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyze the teacher's work, opinions and experiences of teaching with material from A reading class. The study is conducted using interviews and observations, and aims to answer how a number of teachers reason about the material they work with to accommodate students with different reading comprehension strategies and to observe how a number of teachers work with this material. The two questions this study aims to answer are:- How do a number of teachers use the material from A reading class?- How do teachers reason about their work with A reading class? In what extents do they use the material that is available? And what are the advantages / disadvantages they see with the material?

The methods used to conduct this study is: four interviews with teachers who work in grades 1-4 and five observations in grade 1-4 where the material was used.

The theory, and the theoretical concepts this study is based on is: a number of international theories in witch A reading class is based on, the study of Barbro Westlund and the material from A reading class.

The study shows that teachers work with the material very differently. The teachers who have chosen to work with the material only see it as positive, those who have been forced to work with the material however, see some negative aspects of it. All of the teachers pick parts of the material to fit their students and class. Most of the teachers in this study only use the pictures that represent the five reading strategies. Only one of the teachers uses lesson plans and the instructions from A reading class. That teacher only has students with Swedish as a first language. The other three teachers have students with another first language than Swedish, as the majority of their class. They believe that children with another first language than Swedish may experience difficulties with the lesson plans from A reading class due to the long instructions and strict structure. One teacher uses the text from A reading class as a library, and in two of the interviews the teachers describes that they work with smaller reading groups so that the students get teaching at their own level.
