Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine teachers’ motives to work or to not work with A reading class and how teachers teach reading comprehension strategies. The two questions this study aims to answer are:

  • Which motives do teachers have that make them choose or not to choose to teach reading comprehension strategies based on the material A reading class?
  • How do teachers teach reading comprehension strategies in their reading comprehension instruction?  

   The approach used to conduct this study was qualitative. Four teachers working in grades 4-6 were interviewed and their lessons were observed. This study is based on theories that show different models (RT, TSI and QtA) of how to work with reading comprehension strategies, A reading class and a variety of learning theories: Vygotskij and Dewey.

   A reading class is a material with reading comprehension strategies through characters. This study shows that the motives of those teachers who choose to work with the material A reading class is primarily to provide tools, to structure and make it clearer for the students to understand texts. The teachers who do not work with A reading class say that their motives to not work with the material is because there is too much material, meaning that they have to make a great deal of copies. Their motives are also based on their belief that the material contains texts that are too difficult for their group, they simply have other materials that suit their pupils better. The study shows that the teachers Sandra, Gunilla and Stina teach in reading comprehension strategies through RT, in addition to Marie who is focusing on the strategy “artist” of A reading class. The teachers also used TSI regarding the reading comprehension strategies, but QtA was not used among teachers. All the teachers had the conversation and the learning as a social process as an important part in providing students with reading comprehension strategies.
