-”Whatcha sayin’?” : A qualitative study about teachers' attitudes towards the spoken language (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of my thesis is to map out the attitudes and opinions of professional and future teachers in relation to the spoken language. The study has been conducted through an initial survey that was followed up by four in-depth interviews, two with professional teachers and two with prospective teachers. The study is of a qualitative nature and supports the sociocultural perspective. In the syllabus for the Swedish language, the Swedish National Agency for Education determines which position the spoken language should have in the classroom. According to the syllabus, the purpose of the language is to develop people's identity, give people the opportunity to express their feelings and thoughts while at the same time being receptive to other people's feelings and thoughts. Furthermore, The Swedish National Agency for Education believes that it is important to have a rich and varied language to be able to be a part of the society. In my research, it has been found that this view is shared by many teachers regardless of category. However, there are differences in how teachers work with the spoken language in the classroom and what is considered accepted within the spoken language. The result also indicates that the oral language spoken at school is affected by the type of oral language the pupils are used to at home.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med mitt examensarbete är att utforska vilka åsikter och inställningar som yrkesverksamma och blivande lärare har i förhållandet till talspråket. Kartläggningen har skett genom en inledande enkät som utmynnade i fyra fördjupande intervjuer, två med yrkesverksamma lärare och två med blivande lärare. Undersökningen är av kvalitativ art och tar stöd i det sociokulturella perspektivet i den teoretiska utgångspunkten. Skolverket statuerar i kursplanen för svenskämnet vilken ställning talspråket bör har i klassrummet. Enligt kursplanen ska språket utveckla människors identitet, ge människor möjligheten att uttrycka sina känslor och tankar och samtidigt vara mottaglig för andra människors känslor och tankar. Vidare anser även Skolverket att för att kunna vara en del av samhället är det viktigt att ha ett rikt och varierat språk. I min forskning har det framkommit att denna syn delas av många lärare oavsett kategori. Dock finns det skillnader i hur man arbetar med språket i klassrummet och vad som anses vara accepterat inom talspråket. Resultatet tyder även på att hemmiljön påverkar det talspråk som eleven bär med sig in i skolvärlden.
