Man, yrkeselev – och skribent?: Textproduktion på industritekniska programmet

Abstract [en]

In this essay, boys’ writing in Swedish at the Industry Engineering Programme is illustrated. During interviews, four eighteen-year-old students (marks IG–MVG) describe themselves as writers, comment on their writing, and decide whether the writing education has prepared them for future writing tasks. Also, their actual texts are analysed, using Palmér and Östlund-Stjärnegårdh’s (2005) model, and connections between the boys’ statements and their texts are shown. Three of the boys regard themselves as average writers, stating that writing can be pleasant depending on the subject. This may imply that teachers more frequently should adapt writing assignments to students’ interests. In Swedish, the boys claim to write short stories, book reviews or analyses, but they rarely write in their leisure time. All boys believe they are prepared for future writing tasks, but three of them presume they will not need to write as employees. Thus, they seem unaware of the prominence of writing in society. Their texts vary depending on their level of knowledge; the boys with low marks write shorter, flawed texts, while the boys with high marks produce well-written texts. Some of their statements are confirmed here, for example those regarding a large vocabulary, grammatical knowledge or careless writing.
