Abstract [en]

Reading comprehension among boys is something that has deteriorated over the years. But is it so that boys do not read or do they just read things that does not count? Today there is an expanded textual concept. This means that even movies, comics, games, music and images counts as text, not just printed words on paper. I therefore want to investigate how boys in upper secondary school describes the text they encounter during their free time as well as the texts they encounter in school during the subject of Swedish. I want to see how their attitude is to these two textworlds. Six interviews with six diffrent boys from a upper secondary school north of Stockholm has been made. They are all in the alignment electricity program and are now in the second grade. They have all been reading the course “Svenska 1, 100p”. At first, the respondents said they did not read or meet text during their free time. They pointed out that they did not read books. When the respondents then learned that text could be more than only books, their answers changed and a textworld was created. The respondents describe the textworld in their free time as primarily screen-based. This is where they create a community with their friends and the texts has also the function to pass time. In the subject “Svenska 1” the respondents describe the textworld as non-screen based. They mean that they mainly read books. On the other hand, they see this as a positive thing as they are confident that the teacher chooses the "right" books and that they will learn something from it. This result shows that boys are reading, but usually not books. In the texts they encounter, one finds mostly male main characters. They are often supernaturally strong and smart and are classified as superheroes.
