"Yeah, you must maybe not have read it but..." : A study on students' thoughts on reading fiction within the subject of Swedish in the Swedish upper secondary school (English)
Abstract [en]

This study examines students’ thoughts on the purpose of reading fiction in the Swedish upper-secondary school within the subject Swedish. This is then compared to the curriculum for the part of the subject concerning literature. Interviews were conducted with groups of students at one Swedish school with students enrolled at various theoretical programs. The study found that the students mostly focused on abilities not specifically tied to fiction, but rather general abilities concerning reading and language such as vocabulary and speed of reading in the general sense. The students were also found to have some idea of the existence of a literary canon, even though such a canon does not exist within the curriculum.

Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen undersöker elevers uppfattningar om syftet med att läsa skönlitteratur i ämnet Svenska på gymnasieskolan. Detta jämförs sedan med läroplanen GY11:s motivering till litteraturundervisningen inom Svenskämnet. Gruppintervjuer utfördes med elever från en skola i Sverige som läste olika studieförberedande gymnasieprogram. Studien fann att eleverna mest verkade lägga fokus på färdigheter som inte är direkt kopplade till läsning av skönlitteratur utan mer kring färdigheter som är rent generella kring läsning och språket så som ordförråd och läshastighet i största allmänhet. Eleverna verkade ha någon form av uppfattning om existensen av en litteraturkanon, även om en sådan inte existerar i läroplanen.
