Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how a group of teachers in the same primary school work with fiction read-alouds in the Swedish teaching. The collected material was analysed by using Langer’s (2005) theory about imagination worlds. Two questions were then formulated to answer the purpose of the study: How do the teachers plan their fiction read-alouds in Swedish teaching? and How do the teachers describe the implementation of their read-alouds?

The result shows that all of the teachers plan their fiction read-alouds with different types of preparation. This preparation includes: choosing the right book, which the teachers claim is dependent on several factors such as the students’ knowledge level or interests; reading the book before the read-aloud; and introducing the book in an interesting way during the read-aloud, which creates a pre-understanding of the content. Lastly, the teachers revealed that a large part of their planning work consists of creating post-reading tasks which are primarily aimed at developing students’ writing.

The result also shows that the teachers have distinct rules for the implementation of their read-alouds. These rules help the teachers create favourable conditions for engaging students in the world of fiction. During read-alouds, the teachers embody the text through the use of their voices and body language. The importance of conversation during the read-aloud, with the primary purpose of helping students understand the content of the story, was also emphasized. The teachers also claim that conversation also gives their students a chance to think out loud and to reflect on the reading, thus gaining the opportunity to share each other’s thoughts.
