Abstract [en]

In today’s schools students enter classrooms with different experiences and knowledge level. In order to promote the development and learning of all pupils, teaching should be adapted to each pupil’s circumstances and needs. According to the Swedish school curriculum (Lgr 11) and the Education Act (2010:800) there is an emphasis to have all students reach the same academic goals and standards. However past research indicates that individual adaption tailored for the individual needs of students in English teaching is considered somewhat average.

Based on Vinterek’s (2006) individualization types the aim of this study has been to examine whether and if so, in what way teachers individualize English teaching based on the varying circumstances and needs of pupils. This study also aims to identify what factors teachers’ claim affect their work with individual adaption in teaching, based on Lundgren’s (1972) and Stensmo’s (2008) frame factor theory. Based on a qualitative method with both observations and interviews, two questions have been answered: 1. In what way do three teachers work with individualize English teaching, based on the varying circumstances and needs of each pupil? 2. What factors do teachers consider affects their work with individualization in English teaching?

From the outcomes of the observations and interviews the results show that the teachers do work with an individual based education tailored for the individual needs of the pupil’s. The result from this study also shows that the teachers face several difficulties with individualization in English teaching. All of the teachers claim that time and the size of the class are factors that most affect the teaching process with individualization in the classroom.
