Språkutvecklande arbetssätt: i det mångspråkiga klassrummet
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study was to see how the teacher works with children´s language and what working methods they use to develop language, as well as knowledge, among the children in a multilingual school.
The main questions for the essay:
• What reasons the interviewed teachers about language development?
• What approach do the interviewed teachers describe that they use in their multi-lingual children’s group?
In order to collect empirical data to my study I chose to use a qualitative method, which consisted of interviews with four teachers in a multilingual class. The study is based on a socio-cultural perspective where social interaction, blocking, communication and language use is the main tool for children's learning and development.
The results of my study revealed that teachers realize that when they involve teamwork in class it enhances the activity among the children. In particular when the bilingual children use the language actively in different contexts where they communicate and discuss with each other in the teaching subject. When the children use language in different contexts it also enables them to develop linguistically and in terms of knowledge. The earlier the teacher introduces teamwork in different contexts, the more instructive it is for the children to develop linguistically with their skills. Through this they will be able to achieve the objectives of their various subjects.
