Abstract [en]

I take interest in whether and how students in primary schools nowadays in Sweden participate in book clubs. My focus is on why teachers and school librarians choose to run book clubs and try to understand the structures that make book clubs possible. The method form my work is the qualitative research interview. I interviewed a group of eight people, five school librarians and three teachers from a medium-sized city in southern Sweden. My theoretical framework is a model contructed by researcher Patricia Montiel-Overall called Teacher- and Librarian Collaboration. The model sort theacher and school librarian collaboration into four types. The types illustrates degrees of collaboration in which the relationship between the different professions is at the center. The purpose of my thesis is to compare how teachers and school librarians run book clubs, what purpose they think the book clubs have, their different literature educational roles and how their collaboration influence the book clubs. My investigation revealed that there are many ways in which to run book clubs in classroom and school library. The purpose of book clubs for my respondents was generally to deepen the reading experience for their students. However, it appeared that teachers controlled book clubs by choosing which book the students should read and put together the groups while school librarians gave the students more room for the student to choose. My conclusion is that this is influenced by the teachers' and shool librarians' respective pedagogical roles. All respondents had a good relationship and informal collaborative relationships (Type B), only one reached a higher category (Type C). I found that the extent of the collaboration can be linked to the volume of the book club. The better the cooperation, the more students got a chance to join a book club. This is a two years master's thesis in Library and Information Science.
