"At night I dream that I am in Afghanistan, and I'm afraid" : A qualitative study on the factors of success in educating newly arrived pupils (English)
Abstract [en]

This study highlights newly arrived pupils’ experiences of the Swedish school system. From a socio-cultural and intercultural perspective, the pupils’ school experiences have been interpreted and analyzed in accordance with the study’s purpose of looking into the importance of collective processes and an intercultural approach for newly arrived pupils' learning. The study should be interpreted in the light of the Swedish school challenges where, in a short period of time large groups of newly arrived pupils have started their studies at the secondary school’s introduction program. The study's qualitative materials were obtained through qualitative field interviews with six newly arrived students. The results of these interviews are explained and analyzed based on the theoretical perspectives of the thesis. The result shows that collective processes and the socio-cultural perspective focus on social interaction, language development and cognitive challenges, also fits well with the newly arrived pupils’ perceptions of their learning. The study also argues that there tend to be few intercultural elements in education in the Introduction Language program, even though the Swedish National Agency for Education and the curriculum asks for its presence in the education of newly arrived pupils. A third conclusion set out in the study is that newly arrived pupils want more intercultural elements in their education, to seek understanding and increased knowledge on issues relating on cultures and identities.
