    Students' views on the learning of kanji: A study the views and experiences of students at the Swedish universities concerning the teaching and learning of Chinese characters as used in Japanese2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Kanji, the Chinese characters adopted to write the Japanese language, is often mentioned as

    one of the most difficult aspects of mastering said language. This is especially said about people

    from outside the Sinosphere i.e. PRC, Taiwan, North and South Korea, Japan and Vietnam. In the

    following thesis 12 students studying the Japanese language at Swedish universities were

    interviewed about their experiences when it comes to learning and being taught about kanji.

    A chapter summarizing some of the research that is relevant to this thesis is also included.

    Topics touched upon in this and the result chapter include the desire for more structured approach to

    kanji learning based on breaking down the characters into elemental components, spaced repetition

    (SRS), mnemonics.

    Actitudes lingüísticas hacia las variedadesdialectales del español: Un estudio sociolingüístico con profesores de españolcomo lengua extranjera (ELE) en Suecia2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate three groups of teachers from Spain, Sweden and Latin America regarding their attitudes towards the varieties of Spanish in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language (ELE) in Sweden.The results, based on a questionnaire with a relatively limited group of informants, show that a big majority of informants believe that both the Spanish of Spain and Latin American Spanish should be taught. None of the informants had the preference for teaching Latin American Spanish, while a considerable minority was inclined towards Spanish from Spain. This positive attitude towards the peninsular variety is more recognized among teachers of Spanish origin and among the teachers who teaches at the primary school level in Sweden.Grammatical, lexical and phonological aspects have also been compared in the questionnaire but the number of informants in each group was too small for the results to be generalized.

    Change in Meaning in the Swedish Dub of Spirited Away: A translation study on dubbing using a pivot language2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to study the results of dubbing from Japanese to Swedish using a pivot language. The author examines the Swedish dubbed version of the Japanese animated film

    Spirited Away by comparing it to the original version and finding differences in what in-formation is conveyed through the dialogue. Because the Swedish dubbed version has been translated using the English language script as a base, the English dubbed version is also examined. The findings are then presented, categorized and analysed according to where the changes have appeared and what they consist of. Finally, the results are dis-cussed and compared to previous findings in the field. The study finds how many lines of dialogue have been altered, and that the use of a pivot language has greatly increased the number of altered lines, although no proof was found of an increased amount of mistrans-lations. The increased amount of altered lines leads to the conclusion that the usage of a pivot language can be problematic.

    Varför går läsresultaten hos pojkar nedåt?: En systematisk litteraturstudie om pojkars nedåtgående lästrend2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studier visar att läsningen hos elever, särskilt hos pojkar i högstadiet och gymnasiet sjunker, trots att läroplanen i svenska har många avsnitt där eleven ska fokusera på läsning. Syftet med den här litteraturstudien var att undersöka de nedåtgående läsresultat hos pojkar med frågeställningen vad är det som gör att läsresultaten bland pojkar i högstadiet går nedåt? För att besvara syftet gjordes en systematisk litteraturstudie utifrån artiklar och avhandlingar. Resultatet i studien visar att den nedåtgående lästrenden hos pojkar inte enbart beror på skolans arbete med läsning utan också på samhällsfaktorer. I skolan har lärare ofta olika förväntningar på flickor och pojkar som gör det mer accepterat att pojkar underpresterar. Utifrån ett samhällsperspektiv har pojkar ofta en ”anti-plugg”-kultur där studier är att jämföra med lågt socialt liv. Det är accepterat att ha goda resultat i skolan men resultatet ska ha kommit naturligt och inte genom studier.

    Vem ska läsa svenska som andraspråk?: Elever och lärares uppfattning samt tolkning kring undervisningsämnet svenska som andraspråk på tre gymnasieskolor.2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att genom kvalitativa intervjuer undersöka och tolka lärares och elevers uppfattningar om skolämnet svenska som andraspråk i gymnasial utbildning. Det genom att svara på frågeställningarna 1. Vad är lärarnas uppfattning om skolämnet svenska som andraspråk? 2. Vad är elevernas uppfattning om skolämnet svenska som andraspråk? 3. Vad anser lärarna kan utvecklas i ämnet på skolorna.

    Till skillnad från i grundskolan, där det är rektor som beslutar, är det eleven själv som väljer om hen vill läsa svenska som andraspråk eller svenska på gymnasiet. Studien visar att det finns en attitydskillnad mellan de olika kurserna och att svenska som andraspråk inte alltid är en självklar del av gymnasieskolan, där ämnet fortfarande kan upplevas vara ett ämne med lägre förväntningar, större tolerans mot sämre betyg och mindre insatser vid svårigheter hos eleven.

    Studien visa även att det finns en uppfattning både hos elever och lärare om att elever som läser svenska som andraspråk gör det för att få ett högre betyg lättare och för att det finns en uppfattning om att kursen ska vara lättare svenska och ett stöd till ordinarie kursen svenska.

    Fortsättningsvis har lärarna i studien framfört önskemål om bland annat bättre stödinsatser vid svårigheter för elever i svenska som andraspråk, men även fler undervisningstimmar och att alla lärare på skolan får en utbildning i svenska som andraspråk.

    Att arbeta med IKT i engelskundervisning: En litteraturstudie om att använda digitala verktyg i språkundervisning i åk F-3.2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I takt med att tekniken utvecklas runt om i världen synliggörs informations- och kommunikationsteknologin (IKT) allt mer i skolan. De digitala verktygens framfart är snabbare än någonsin tidigare och blir ett allt vanligare inslag i undervisningen. Syftet med denna litteraturstudie är att ta reda på vad tidigare forskning säger om nyttjandet av digitala verktyg i engelskundervisningen för yngre elever och hur eleverna kan motiveras av att använda surfplattor i språkundervisningen. Det fanns också en önskan att förstå hur surfplattor kan användas i undervisningen. Resultatet av den kvalitativa innehållsanalysen visar att eleverna upplever användandet av surfplattan som roligare än den undervisningen de är vana vid. Elevernas motivation och produktivitet ökar med användandet av surfplattor och lärare har upplevt att eleverna tar större ansvar för sitt eget lärande samt blivit säkrare att prata ett främmande språk. Det som också har framkommit är att användningen dock bör ske i rätt mängd och med tydliga mål för att användningen ska kunna vara som mest givande. Surfplattor i undervisningen är ett relativt outforskat område och det finns ännu inga definitiva besked om hur digitala verktyg påverkar elevernas motivering för språkinlärning. Examenarbetets resultat ger uppkomst för vidare forskning huruvida inlärningen påverkas i användandet av surfplattor vilket skulle kunna forskas på genom empiriska studier.

    Skönlitteraturens plats i engelskundervisningen: En kvalitativ studie om sex engelsklärares syn på användning av skönlitteratur i sin undervisning på gymnasiet2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Reading authentic literature in the English classroom is part of Swedish student´s English education in upper secondary level, according to Skolverket. Therefor, the aim of this work is to determine how six English teachers on this level use authentic literature, how their attitudes towards it is and what they think the benefits for their students are.

    The method used in this work is qualitative, using interviews as the means to reach a conclusion.

    The result shows that the interviewed teachers all use authentic literature at least once every academic year and that their methods are quite similar, working with the literature in book circles and also including films as a way to compare book and film or simply to consolidate what the students have read. It also shows that the teachers have a positive actitude towards using literature in their teaching and that they consider that the benefits for the students are superior since reading trains many aspects of the language ability, such as vocabulary, grammar, interpretation of content and culture knowledge.

    Y ahora toca gramática……: Un estudio cualitativo sobre las actitudes hacia lagramática y los métodos didácticosde unos profesores del bachillerato sueco2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Grammar is one of the most discussed part of language learning. Many studentshave problems understanding how to use the grammatical forms in their ownproduction and communication. The purpose of this work is to investigate theteachers´ attitudes towards grammar and what methods they use when they teachgrammar. The method used in this work is qualitative, with four interviews ofteachers working in the Swedish high school. In order to determine how the teacherswork, we have studied the course plans presented by Skolverket and we have alsostudied what the current research have to say about this. The result shows that theinterviewed teachers mostly vary their methods, using both inductive and deductiveapproaches in order to promote the communicative competence of the students. Theinterviews also show that the teachers have a positive attitude towards grammar,considering it an important part of language learning.

    Flerspråkiga elevers syn på modersmålets betydelse för andraspråksutvecklingen2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur flerspråkiga gymnasieelever upplever modersmålets betydelse för deras andraspråksutveckling. För att uppnå syftet har jag utgått från tre frågeställningar gällande elevers syn på modersmålets betydelse för andraspråksutvecklingen, i vilka situationer eleverna använder sig av sitt modersmål samt hur de upplever att stöttningen av deras modersmål ser ut.

    Undersökningen är gjord i form av kvalitativa intervjuer med sex gymnasieelever med annat modersmål än svenska. Tre av dessa studerar sitt modersmål i skolan och resterande tre gör det inte. Metodvalet gjordes med anledningen av att ha möjlighet att belysa några elevers uppfattningar om ämnet.

    Resultatet av intervjuerna visade att fem av de sex eleverna inte är medvetna om modersmålets betydelse för andraspråksutvecklingen. Däremot framgick det att samtliga någon gång under sin andraspråksinlärning har använt sig av modersmålet i utvecklingen av svenskan, exempelvis för att översätta ord. Samtliga elever uppgav att de är nöjda med det stöd de får i modersmålet, både från skolan och hemmet. Både de elever som inte studerar sitt modersmål i skolan och de elever som inte gör det menade att de ser positivt på modersmålsundervisning. Dock framkom det att majoriteten, fyra av eleverna, ser modersmålsundervisning snarare som ett stöd i svenska än i modersmålet. En sammanfattande slutsats utifrån intervjuerna är att eleverna inte har tillräcklig kunskap om modersmålets betydelse för andraspråksutvecklingen.

    Between the Lines: Japanese-to-English Song Translations and Singability2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In translation of lyrics, there is a lot to consider that may not have evident counterparts in other forms of translation – for example, whether the translation result ends up being singable or not, or if it simply is conveying the meaning of the lyrics in another language, which could arguably fall under general translation studies and has been addressed within the field before. However, from the perspective of Japanese-to-English lyrics and how these can be handled, the field is somewhat lacking in material – even more so from the perspective of fan-made translations. Thus, this project will aim to address this by investigating the theory behind song translation of lyrics and how to translate them into singable versions. It will then attempt to outline and discuss how the restrictions of singability may alter the message of the songs compared to the originals, why this may happen, and what to define the results as.This will be done by performing an analysis of already existing, fan-made translations of lyrics and their rewritten singable counterparts within a chosen fanbase, then translating an originally Japanese song into English before rewriting it into a singable version, while documenting the process.

    Variação, contato e mudança linguística em Moçambique e Cabo Verde: A concordância variável de número em sintagmas nominais do português2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates variable noun phrase number agreement (VNA) in two second language varieties of Portuguese, spoken in Maputo, Mozambique and in Mindelo, Cape Verde. Quantitative VARBRUL analysis is carried out based on recordings made in Maputo and Mindelo 2007 and 2008.

    Previous quantitative studies on VNA in varieties of Brazilian Portuguese (Guy, 1981; Lopes, 2001; Andrade, 2003) as well as on VNA in first and second language varieties of Portuguese from São Tomé (Baxter, 2004; Figueiredo, 2008, 2010) indicate contact between Portuguese and African languages as the main origin of this phenomenon. VNA in Brazilian Portuguese is, however, interpreted by Scherre (1988) and Naro & Scherre (1993, 2007) as the result of language internal drift.

    Varieties of Portuguese from Mozambique and Cape Verde are particularly interesting to contrast in order to investigate influences from African languages on VNA, as in Mozambique Bantu languages are first languages of the vast majority of Portuguese speakers, whereas in Cape Verde, practically all Portuguese speakers are first language speakers of Cape Verdean Creole, whose substrates are West African, and not Bantu, languages. Comparison is also made with previous studies from Brazil and São Tomé.

    The results of this study comment previously postulated explanations for VNA in Portuguese in various ways. The analysis of the variables onset age and age stratum indicates that VNA in the analyzed varieties is a phenomenon linked to the acquisition of Portuguese as a second language and/or language contact rather than the result of internal drift. The fact that all the compared varieties tend to mark plural on pre-head components contradicts Bantu transfer as an explanation for this pattern, and raises the need to also consider more general explanations based on language contact. The basic structural similarity between the compared varieties suggests the existence of a grammatical restructuring continuum.

    Nioizuke: reconsidering verse linking in haikai no renga2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In linked poetry, modern renku and Edo-period haikai no renga, the ideal of “linking by scent”, nioizuke in Japanese, is regarded as typical for the haikai tradition that followed after Matsuo Bashô. Today it is often used as a generic concept for “Bashô-style verse linking”, but there is not much research done about its background and possible meanings. The modern way of understanding this concept probably originates from an argument by Torahiko Terada, in which it is linked to the montage technique of Western cinema. This understanding has been adapted by several haikai scholars, and eventually it becomes connected with the metaphor theory of Roman Jakobson in an article by Haruo Shirane. The aim of this paper is to deconstruct this modern way of understanding the nioizuke by demonstrating how it has been discussed in older texts and treatises. Analyzing some of the works written by several of Bashô's disciples and followers in later centuries and the often enigmatic descriptions of this “scent” and similar concepts they give, it will be suggested that there originally was no single and generic concept, but several related words which were used to describe ideals very different from the basically structural montage or metaphor theories of modern scholarship. A proposal of a more useful definition of the concept will be made and a few verse links will be interpreted from this perspective to demonstrate the usability of the concept in its supposedly more original form.

    What may be gained from mistranslations of Japanese haiku?2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What may be gained from mistranslations of Japanese haiku?

    Translations into Western languages of Japanese haiku have been done for well over a century. The shortness of these poems with their seemingly simple structure has made the form attractive to translators with little or no knowledge of the original language, and in both old and newer publications of translated haiku, mistranslations abound. In translation studies, the focus is usually on the strategies followed to reach a, in some sense, successful translation. In this paper, however, I will investigate a few examples, in English and Swedish, that may rather be regarded as failures and consider why these have turned out in this way. Following George Steiner, I will suggest that translation is a hermeneutic process that is open ended. Mistranslation will thus not be understood as a complete failure, but rather as a first tentative step towards understanding. In that way we may analyze the structural and contextual aspects of the (mis)translation and show how adjustments of these may help us to get beyond what we may regard as common sense and get closer to the very different world of the poem. This may also help us to reflect over the way in which conventions and the cultural context function to define the borderline between understanding and misunderstanding.In addition I will discuss the common theory in haiku translation, maintained by David Barnhill, Steven D. Carter and others, insisting on that the words of a poem, even when translated, should be rendered in the same order as in the original. It will be shown how this theory often lead to what may be called "pidgin translations" which may have influenced the development of Western haiku into a poem that is slightly different from the form practiced in Japan.

    Att lära sig skolspråk och skriva på akademiskt vis: En kvalitativ studie kring lärares tankar och erfarenheter av undervisning för skriftspråksutveckling hos andraspråkselever i senare skolåren2019Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Remembering Hiroshima: Hadashi no Gen from a Trauma Theory Perspective2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, a semi-autobiographical manga, Hadashi no Gen, written by Nakazawa Keiji, is analyzed through the lens of trauma theory. By using trauma theory, I hope to shed light on in what way trauma might affect narrative techniques and in what way the narrative techniques convey trauma and emotion to the reader. For the analysis “Trauma Fiction” by Anne Whitehead was chosen and categories based on her findings were made. The categories are: Intertextuality, repetition, dispersed and fragmented narrative voice, memory place, choiceless choice and fantastic. I discovered that all these themes, observed in other trauma fiction as well, are more or less used as a narrative tool in Hadashi no Gen. Further I observed that by conveying traumatic events and emotions through a combination of images and language is a powerful tool and might even be more effective than standard prose text

    Sfi-lärares erfarenheter av att anpassa undervisningen för elever med PTSD2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna kvalitativa intervjustudie undersöks fyra verksamma sfi-lärares erfarenheter av att undervisa elever med PTSD. Studien ämnar besvara hur lärarnas kännedom om PTSD ser ut, om lärarna tänker på att det skulle kunna finnas elever med PTSD i deras undervisningsgrupp, och huruvida det görs några anpassningar utifrån det, samt vad som ligger till grund för de anpassningar som görs i undervisningen. Resultaten visar att lärarna kan redovisa för de vanliga symtomen av PTSD, och att samtliga tänker på att det kan finnas elever med PTSD i undervisningsgruppen. Lärarna anpassar sin undervisning i olika grad, och det framkommer att flera av lärarna är osäkra på huruvida deras anpassningar egentligen gynnar elever med PTSD. Det som ligger till grund för de anpassningar som görs i undervisningen är främst tanken på elevernas hälsa och tillstånd.

    L’image et le rôle de Zahra dans La Nuit sacrée de Tahar Ben Jelloun: The image and the role of Zahra in Tahar Ben Jelloun’s The Sacred Night 2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work initially aims at the role and image of Zahra / Ahmed, who represents the bucolic Moroccan woman in the novel

    The Sacred Night by Tahar Ben Jelloun who struggles to find her lost female identity. For this, we used Greimas’s scheme at the beginning of our analysis because it helped us to show the role and the dramatic situation of Zahra / Ahmed in the story. We also deepened our work by analysing the family environment of Zahra and its relations, the liberation of the body, the religious aspect, obedience in order to confirm the tragedy of rural women in Morocco. Finally, our work ends with a study of the status of women in a traditional society in which man establishes his power over woman.

    Det viktiga deltagandet: Korttidsutbildade i samtidens diskurs2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete är att belysa konstruktionen av korttidsutbildade invandrare, samt sättet de ska åtgärdas på och vilka mål åtgärden syftar till. Genom en diskursanalys av två samtida policydokument utifrån Foucaults teoretiska ramverk om governmentalitet, visas hur den korttidsutbildade konstrueras som en sorts extra mycket invandrare, där problem som beskrivs gälla för invandrare generellt är särskilt svåra för korttidsutbildade. I problembeskrivningarna märks postkoloniala tankefigurer. En arbetsmarknadsdiskurs präglar policydokumenten, och den korttidsutbildade konstrueras utifrån den som inte anställningsbar. Lösningen på problemen är en utbildningsinsats, den korttidsutbildade ska delta i ett livslångt lärande för att förbättra sin anställningsbarhet, vilket är kännetecknande för samtida politisk styrning. Förutom att förbättra anställningsbarheten identifieras ett annat mål: att skapa ett deltagande subjekt. Aktivt deltagande i samhället ses utifrån ett governmentalitetsteoretiskt perspektiv som en moralisk plikt för individen.

    En studie om gymnasieskolans SVA-elevers attityd och motivation till att lära sig svenska som andraspråk2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Inom skolans värld är elevernas motivation och attityd två faktorer av framgång eller misslyckande. I dagens samhälle, med alltmer multikulturellt inflytande, undersöker denna studie specifikt vilken motivation och attityd SVA- elever har till att lära sig svenska. För att få en tydligare bild på just det, har en kvalitativ forskningsintervju använts som metod och tre invandrarelever och en lärare i ämnet svenska som andraspråk deltagit i studien. Resultatet visar att dessa elever i många fall har både en positiv motivation och attityd kring svenskan och skolan generellt. Det finns alltid undantag men eleverna inser att språket är nyckeln i ett nytt land. Dessutom visar resultat och analys ett tydligt samband mellan motivation och attityd. Så kan konstateras att elever med negativ attityd samtidigt inte uttrycker speciellt mycket motivation till att lära sig svenska eller skolan generellt.

    This study highlights the differences between normative grammar prescriptions and representations of uses in oral discourse. The objective of this research is to analyze the use of French conditional. The research was conducted on the basis of an oral corpus of contemporary French, composed of dialogues by 14 French-speaking bilingual children. I formulated the hypothesis of the existence of an intermediate zone between the conditional and the present of the indicative.

    Using Swedish in the ESL Classroom: An interview study about students and teachers use of Swedish in the ESL classroom2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this empirical study is to investigate the role of the L1 (Swedish for the purpose of this study) at upper secondary schools in Sweden, in English class. It also examines teachers’ and students’ attitudes towards the use of the L1 in the ESL classroom. The method that has been used for this thesis is a qualitative research method. In order to collect data, structured open-ended interviews were conducted. A total of eleven upper secondary students from the same school, and six upper secondary ESL teachers from four different schools, participated in this study. The results show that almost all of the participating students and teachers think that the L1 should be allowed in the classroom, as it can be used as a resource for learning. For instance, as the results demonstrate, the L1 was mainly used as a tool to clarify instructions, explain difficult terms, explain vocabulary and grammar rules, when translating, to manage discipline, and when they are socializing with each other. The majority of the participants suggest that the L1 worked as a very helpful tool in the learning process, especially in situations where students lacked understanding. However, there were also critical responses towards the use of the L1, particularly since the L1 can be easily overused. Previous research shares these latter views regarding the use of the L1 in the classroom, and confirms that it is important that learners are exposed to as much English as possible for successful language learning and development.

    Teachers’ Views on ICT as a Tool in English Teaching for Students with Dyslexia: An interview study with English teachers in grades 7-92016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Information and communications technology (ICT) is a broad concept, which is often discussed in relation to the development of education. More specially, ICT can be seen as a tool to help teachers individualize students’ education. Students who have literacy difficulties, such as dyslexia, are in constant need of new techniques to help them learn and new tools to make their educational development easier. The aim of this thesis is to show what views teachers have regarding using ICT in English teaching at a sample of schools in the south of Sweden. A secondary part of the aim is to see what ICT tools, or other non ICT related methods, these teachers use to improve literacy skills for students with dyslexia.This empirical study is based on interviews with six participants. Previous research within the area is presented and different aspects of ICT within the National Agency for Education in Sweden, and the English syllabus, are also discussed. The results of this thesis show that ICT is seen as a helpful tool to make education easier for both students and teachers. Tools such as ViTal, Spell Right and Legimus are being used and the participants of the study also use iPads and Chromebooks in their teaching. According to the interviews, ICT can tribute to a fun way of learning and a more individualized education. Other non ICT related methods are also used to help students with dyslexia and these are often in terms of pictures in connection to words. These findings are based on a limited number of participants in a small area of south of Sweden. Therefore, further research is needed to see if the findings can be verified with more participants, in different parts of the country.

    Att fostra nysvenskar till goda samhällsmedborgare: – en läroboksanalys2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur det svenska samhället och människorna i den speglas i läroböcker för sfi (utbildning i svenska för invandrare). Studien är en kvalitativ text- och bildanalys. Kritisk diskursanalys har använts för att studera de olika diskurserna, som förekommer i läroböckerna. Resultatet av studien är att läroböckerna visar upp stereotyper av människor, som befinner sig i en produktiv ålder eller som är på väg in i en produktiv ålder. Därför förekommer till exempel äldre människor i väldigt liten utsträckning och när de förekommer befinner de sig ute i periferin av händelserna. Det traditionella familjelivet med familjeaktiviteter finns inte, utan alla familjemedlemmar har aktiviteter på skilda håll. Kärnfamiljen är inte vanligt förekommande, utan de flesta familjer är nybildade. Människorna är fria att göra vad de vill och föräldraskapet är inget hinder för det. Samkönade relationer nämns i ett fall. Sammanfattningsvis kan sägas att, bilden som framställs av människorna i samhället är att de är goda samhällsmedborgare, som tar ansvar för sina liv och fattar de rätta besluten för att kunna vara eller bli självförsörjande. Det samhället som framställs i läroböckerna är ett samhälle som är väl fungerande utan problem, som till exempel arbetslöshet eller bidragstagare.

    Flipped Classroom: A Literature Review on the Benefits and Drawbacks of theReversed Classroom2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Technology has become an integral part in the realm of education. The flipped classroom is a

    recent teaching method where students can watch instructional online videos outside the

    classroom that actively engage them in their learning process. Although this trend has gained

    momentum in many disciples and there are many studies available, research behind language

    acquisition through the flipped classroom model is limited. Still it is implemented by many

    teachers in the upper secondary school in Sweden. The aim of this study is to investigate the

    benefits and drawbacks of the flipped classroom in the EFL context and to see if the Flipped

    Classroom enhances interactive skil

    ls in students’ language learning. Peer reviewed research

    articles were used and data has been collected through research behind the Flipped Classroom.

    The perceptions behind it were divided. Some teachers and students experienced the Flipped

    Classroom as something positive with regard to availability of material, the promotion of active

    learning for students and enhancement in language interaction. Along with these, criticism

    made on this teaching method is that creating material to be available online was time

    consuming and that perceived an increase in the homework load. As regards oral interaction,

    both teachers and students felt that it did enhance skills in speaking since preparation before

    class lead to qualitative time for interaction with the teacher during class, something that was

    very limited before implementing the flipped classroom model. This review suggests that there

    is a demand for further studies in the area of English language teaching and English language

    acquisition in the Swedish context of upper secondary education.

    Flerspråkiga elevers möjligheter till en likvärdig utbildning och skolframgång: En studie om språk- och kunskapsutvecklande arbetssätt2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur några högstadielärare berättar att de arbetar språk- och kunskapsutvecklande för att främja flerspråkiga elevers lärande och hjälpa de nå skolmålen.

    För att besvara syftet utgår undersökningen utifrån följande tre frågeställningar: Vilka skolfaktorer anser lärarna påverkar flerspråkiga elevers lärande? Hur utformar och anpassar lärarna undervisningen så att flerspråkiga elever får den stöttning de behöver för att kunna utvecklas både språkligt och ämnesmässigt? Hur tillvaratar lärarna flerspråkighet i undervisningen?

    Denna undersökning har genomförts med hjälp av kvalitativ metod i form av djupintervjuer med 6 högstadielärare. Resultatet visar att de flesta lärare anser att trygghet i skolan är en av de viktigaste faktorerna för att flerspråkiga elever ska kunna nå skolframgång, men just att få med elevernas första språk i det dagliga arbetet i klassrummet är något som behöver utvecklas. Undersökningen visar också att när det gäller pedagogiska arbetssätt och strategier så tillämpar lärarna olika metoder som gynnar flerspråkiga elevers lärande men att flerspråkighet är något som inte tas till vara tillräckligt. Av resultatet framgår att lärare är medvetna om vikten av att synliggöra elevernas språk och kulturer i klassrummet, men majoriteten säger att de behöver arbeta mer med det. Elevernas första språk, erfarenheter och bakgrund synliggörs inte i det dagliga arbetet i klassrummet. Flerspråkighet ses som en resurs i allmänhet men den tas inte till vara så som lärarna själva hade önskat. Flerspråkighet är snarare något som man jobbar med när tillfälle ges än ett kontinuerligt arbete som en naturlig del i undervisningen i alla ämnen. Undersökningen visar även att bättre samarbete behövs med andra lärare och studiehandledare och att samarbetet med modersmålslärare är något som de flesta lärare i den här studien önskar att de hade men att detta samarbete knappast existerar.

    De la production de connaissances de recherche enlittérature.: Étude comparative sur la recherche littéraire en Afriquefrancophone.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study answers the following three research questions : Does an African (francophone)

    epistemology exist ? How is the methodology of literary research defined ? What are the

    exact methods used by literary research in Africa ? Building on the philosophical work of

    Paulin J. Hountondji we develop a concept of African knowledge. In the absence of

    African theories of literary research we call upon European theories proposed by

    researchers such as Kathrin Busch, Ivan Jablonka and Corina Caduff. Next, four literary

    works,

    Wala Bok. Une histoire orale du hip hop au Sénégal by Fatou Kandé Senghor,

    Bribes d’une vie nigériane

    by Françoise Ugochukwu, La Gloire des imposteurs, lettres

    sur le Mali et l’Afrique

    by Aminata Dramane Traoré and Boubacar Boris Diop and Bogo.

    Notes de travail chez des potières à Bamako

    by Emmanuelle Samson are analyzed to

    identify the exact literary research methods used in Africa.

    La violence – acte criminel ou oeuvre d'art ?: Critique thématique de l'image de la violence dans RueFélix-Faure de Ken Bugul2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This critical reading of

    Rue Félix-Faure by Ken Bugul is a rather structuralist thematic

    study combined with a pragmatic approach. Firstly, the secondary sources on Ken Bugul

    and her work are analysed and the importance of social issues, including feminism and

    sexuality, as well as the linguistic particularities of her literary language are underscored.

    Secondly, the critical reading's objective is to determine the exact nature of violence as

    depicted in

    Rue Félix-Faure: is it an act of crime or a piece of art? The victim of the act of

    violence central to the history is reified, even dehumanised by the author. Meanwhile the

    act committed is described as being a spectacle or a story, in any case not a crime.

    However, the author still leaves a considerable scope for different interpretations, thereby

    avoiding any definite judgement. The linguistic ambiguity fits into the biographical

    background and the literary work of an author who rejects all kind of cultural and personal

    patronization. The scope of this critical reading is limited by its rather structuralist

    approach and the polysemy employed by Ken Bugul. Therefore, future research should

    focus on the sociological aspects of her work and the development of a theoretical

    framework for the interpretation of polysemic literature.
