Abstract [en]

This article draws on the case of the writing of one boy in grade four and five, to examine multilingual school policy on classroom level, in the form of attitudes and practices, which support students’ identities by affirming their diverse identities and offering spaces for identity negotiation. Based on analysis of the two texts, combined with interviews and observations from classroom practices were the texts were produced and presented, it is argued that by including students’ diverse language in education as resources, space may be created for students’ to negotiate identities. In this case the boy in focus used the writing to express a variety of identities. It is argued that teachers can actively choose to challenge coercive power relations by supporting students’ diversity through the inclusion of students’ diverse language resources, which is particularly important for students who stand a risqué of being exposed to marginalization or stigmatization.
