Abstract [en]

In this study, we analyse reflective diary texts produced by twelve multilingual Swedish fifth-graders with immigrant background after the terrorist attack in Paris in 2015, where several employees of the magazine Charlie Hebdo were killed. Our overall aim was to study if allowing the students to discuss and reflect upon engaging events outside the school in writing educates the students in democratic values and in arguing for their opinions. Our specific aim was to analyse and discuss how the students expressed their emotions, opinions and moral values in the texts in terms of the discursive strategies of representation and legitimisation (Hart 2010), and how they actively construe the events accounted for in relation to themselves. Our results show that in the few lines of the texts, the students, with varied linguistic resources in Swedish, constructed social groups based on dichotomous ethical concepts of right and wrong and on emotional assessments legitimising their opinions and beliefs.
