Let there be language : Teachers’ thoughts about language development in pre-school (English)
Abstract [en]

Abstract Aim; With this study we aim to know more about the possibilities teachers in pre-school regard useful in their work, when encouraging children’s language development. In the study we are inspired by the thoughts and ideas of Lev Vygotskij. Method; We interviewed eight trained teachers at four pre-schools in Sweden. The interviews were recorded and later written down. The teachers all work in public pre-schools with no specified pedagogical ideology. In our analysis of the interviews we focused in finding corresponding themes that surfaced during the interviews. Then we thoroughly went through the questions to get a deeper understanding of what had been said during the interview. Result; All teachers agree on the importance of reading to the children. However, they don’t talk about how to read, which is something that researchers in the field emphasize. When putting together the result we found that researchers and teachers agreed that interest is important when learning something new. The teachers also expressed that they felt competent to create an inspirational environment where the teachers and children can meet. Conclusions; Everybody agrees that physical and social environment of the school effects the children’s learning conditions. The prerequisitions that the children are offered have a connection to their teachers competences and interests. All teachers participating in this study regard themselves as working according to the official curriculum for pre-schools. There ways of working differs, which we find to be a result of how the curriculum is formulated. It presents aims but not how to reach them. This makes the curriculum open to different interpretations.
