Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Formal writing is an essential part of teaching Swedish and is fundamental for higher education and professional career. The aim of my essay is to research what didactic methods Swedish teachers utilizes in upper secondary school to improve students' abilities to write formal texts. I will also examine students’ project papers in an attempt to measure the extent of formal word choice. In the presentation of the literature I decided to use, for example, Per Olov Svedner’s perspective on writing as a process, Siv Strömquist’s manuals for essay writing and various literature regarding linguistic correctness and essay layout. Interviews with three upper secondary school teachers reveals that active feedback is a basis for students development regarding formal writing in both school and professional career. An analysis of the project papers points to insecurities regarding subjectivity, objectivity and punctuation as common issues within academic writing.
