Development in argumentation : A study of written argument in seventh grade (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna undersökning granskas 31 texter skrivna av elever i årskurs 7 höstterminen 2011. Samtliga texter är skrivna efter samma på förhand fastställda uppgift. Metodmässigt har texterna granskats genom en närläsning strukturerad av ett analysschema.  Undersökningen syftar till att besvara följande frågeställningar:

- Vilka är de texttypsmässiga styrkorna och svagheterna i elevtexterna?

- Hur ser samspelet ut mellan berättandet och argumenterandet i elevtexterna?

- Vilka typer av kunskaper i argumentation visar sig i elevtexterna?

Sammanfattningsvis visar studien att eleverna kan föra fram en tes och argument som stödjer tesen. Dock finns det utrymme för förbättring vad det gäller skapandet av disposition. Undersökningen visar också att en mindre del av eleverna valde att skriva en diskuterande text istället för en renodlad argumentation. Eleverna har i de flesta fall en god känsla för blandningen av den argumenterande och berättande texttypen. I diskussionen redogörs för hur texterna skulle kunna användas i ett formativt arbetssätt för att diskutera kunskaps-kvalitéer.

Abstract [en]

In this thesis 31 student texts are examined by close reading. The texts were written in seventh grade on the fall semester of 2011. The study of close reading were structured by an analytic scheme and aimed to answer the following questions:

- Which are the strengths and weaknesses in the student’s text in relation to text type?

-  How is the relationship between narrative and argumentative text types represented?

-  Which signs of knowledge about written argument appear in the student’s texts? 

The study shows that most students can formulate a thesis and argument to support it.   There is however room for improvement when it comes to the disposition of the text. The study also shows that some of the students wrote a text as a discussion rather than an argument. In most cases the students are successful in combining narrative and argumentative text types. The thesis is concluded by a discussion about how these results could be helpful in the frame of formative assessment and guide students to develop their argumentative skill.
