Abstract [en]

Research has shown that students with another mother tongue than Swedish terminate elementary school with lower grades in all subjects, compared to students having Swedish as a mother tongue. This fact justifies further research on the forms of teaching Swedish as a second language. Attention has been given to the fact that the students with another mother tongue than Swedish have to cope with "dual learning". Parallel to the learning of a second language they need to obtain knowledge in all other subjects. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how the School organise the work with students having another mother tongue than Swedish, and to find out how teachers in other subjects solve the problem of having students that struggle with "dual learning". The questions I will be answering in this paper is:

  1. How do the school organise the teaching of students having Swedish as second language (SVA-students), when in comes to improving language skills and obtaining knowledge?
  2. How has this particular organisation affected the work of teachers in other subjects?
  3. Which are the advantages and disadvantages of this form to organise the work and teaching, according to the teachers involved?

The method used in the investigation is "qualitative deep interviews". The theoretical points of departure are Haug’s concepts of "excluding integration" and "including integration". In this analysis I have furthermore used organisational theories like "the learning of organisations" and the "learning cycle" from Kolb. In the didactical analysis I have used "theories of writing" from various authors and "theories of language" from Vygotskij.

The result of the investigation shows that the investigated school gone from "excluding integration" to "including integration". Nowadays the responsibility for SVA-students are distributed among all teachers in the school, implying a substantial changes in the role of teachers. The role of the SVA-teachers has also developed simultaneously into something which could be described as tutor or mentor to teachers of the other subjects. The positive and clear response from the school management to these initiatives has also been of great significance. In this process the book "Schaffholding Language – Schaffholding Learning" of Pauline Gibbon has played an important role and has lead to the continuous training and development of methods at the school.
