Abstract [en]

This study is founded on my personal interest in Swedish as a language as well as a subject in the Swedish school system. The development of pupils in terms of the Swedish language has always interested me, in particular the writing development and what motivates pupils to write texts. During my time as a teacher, I have observed several key factors that contributes to the development of pupils’ writing skills; for example, the pursuit of a grade, demands from the teacher, or the interest in a specific genre. However, there are certainly an exceeding number of factors that affects pupils’ writing development. 

In addition, as a teacher I have encountered several difficulties present in pupils writing ability as well as their self-perception as writers. For example, during a writing exercise in Swedish 1, a course in upper secondary school, the pupils were learning how to paraphrase. The pupils were asked by me “What makes you into a good writer?”, with a surprised look the pupil said “Writer? I am not a writer? I am just doing the task”. Subsequently, it became clear to me that these pupils do not view themselves as writers. They might not feel that the texts are their own in which their personalities and experiences are present.

Thus, I chose to conduct a writing project in the school which I work. The present study will analyse upper secondary school pupils’ self-reflections about their writing. This will be conducted by asking upper secondary school pupils at a school with a vehicular profile to read and write short stories as well as writing reading logs. The idea is that as the pupils were writing their short stories and writings their reading logs I would simultaneously collect and analyse their logs. In conclusion, the study will be based on the pupils’ reading logs. The purpose is to investigate the self-perception of pupils’ writing as they are writing and reflecting over their written production.
