Abstract [en]

This is a study that examines Swedish upper secondary school English teachers' attitudes

toward notetaking and notetaking teaching during listening lessons to see how current English

teachers implement notetaking teaching to help students store data while listening to

information in English. The reason for the investigation is that teachers might assume that

students already have the physical and cognitive abilities that are required to take notes and

therefore just tell students to “take notes”. Since research shows that notetaking can be used in

information-transmission situations to e.g., record and recall information but also to aid

reflection, teaching in notetaking can help students better their results in school and it can be

used in everyday life as well as in later careers.

A questionnaire encountered data by five current teachers of English followed by semistructured

interviews with four current teachers of English. The findings show that the

majority of the participants have a positive attitude towards notetaking and notetaking

teaching and believe it is important for students to take notes and know how to take notes

during listening lessons. The result also shows that all the participating teachers teach students

how to use different notetaking strategies like abbreviations, symbols, chants, and keywords

and one teacher also teaches a notetaking method, Outline format, even though 60% only

teaches notetaking sometimes. Additionally, teachers who read this essay can increase their

awareness of notetaking and its benefits and reflect over how they can align their teaching

with the subject syllabus for English by implementing notetaking teaching.
