Abstract [en]

The acqusition af advanced literacy is a challenge for many of the second language speaking students, who have to learn a new language, as they learn in a new language. The aim of this essay is to find out how teachers, who teach swedish as a second language, plan and reason around their work to give their students optimal possibilities to develope advanced literacy and thereby succeed in their studies.

The theoretical framework in this essay is the systemic functional linguistics, SFL, that focuses in particular on function in the language using, rather than on the form. Since scientific research has shown that didactic methods connected to SFL, are helping student developing advanced literacy, this essay aims to clarify weather teachers are familiar with these theories and methods and if so, are the methods advocated in the teaching or do the teachers prefer to teach in other ways with different methods.

To find answers, three qualitative interviews have been done with three teacher who work with second language speaking teenagers in the later years of school. All of them find difficulties in helping their student to achieve ability in comprehensing and using a more academic language, accordning to knowledge recuirements in curriculum. None of the teachers say that they use SFL-methods purposely, though, all of them mention that they have a genre-based approach in teaching the students new text types.

Neither of the informants say that they explicitly teach their student how to create texts that are more abstract och general, as in academic literature, for instance by creating gramatical metaphores, according to SFL. The results of this study find that the interviewed teachers lack of a distinct metalanguage that may be useful in teaching the students how to develop advanced literacy and master the academic language.
