Boys, girls and literature : Gender studies of children's literature choices in age 10–12 years (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka skillnader i pojkars och flickors litteraturval, beroende på genus. Undersökningen tittar på karaktärernas betydelse, handlingen och författarens genus, för att se om det är detta valet grundas på och varför faller det där det gör. Jag har tittat på tidigare forskning och resultat från PISA och PIRLS, vilket var grunden till att denna studie gjordes. För att komma fram till ett resultat har jag använt mig av intervjuer. Informanterna var 20 elever i årskurs 4–6 och 2 mellanstadielärare. Resultatet visade en skillnad i litteraturvalet beroende på genus, men denna skillnad tydliggjordes först bland informanterna i den högre åldersgruppen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate differences in boys and girls literature choices, depending on gender. The survey looks at the significance of the characters, the act and the authors gender, to see if this is the basis of which the choice is based and why does it fall where it does. I have looked at previous research and results from PISA and PIRLS, which was the reason why this study was done. To arrive at a result, I have used interviews. The informants were 20 students in grades 4–6 and 2 middle school teachers. The result showed a difference in the literature choice depending on gender, but this difference was first clarified among the informants in the higher age group.
