Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to get a better knowledge and understanding of the way teachers are working with reading comprehension in the grades 1 and 2, which was done through description of 5 teachers way of working.

The theoretical basis of this study grounds in the sociocultural perspective. I based my study on Vygotsky’s theory which claims that strategies transferred from adults to children through social interaction get internalised and then used independently. I have also made use of several theories that specifically deal with reading comprehension that allowed me to identify this area of teaching as a complex one, consisting of several elements. In order to understand a text on a deeper level a reader has to be able to infer, or read between the lines. In order to be able to develop their comprehension to this level pupils need to be educated in that.

Methodologically this is a qualitative study based on interviews with five teachers, three of them work as teachers at the elementary school, and two – as teachers for pupils with special needs. All of the respondents work in three different schools in Stockholm area.

The result of this study shows that almost all of the teachers interviewed work with different elements that reading comprehension consists of. Only one teacher works actively to give pupils an idea of reading comprehension on a deeper level.
