Students’ perception of the Swedish subject in the third year of upper secondary school (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study has been to investigate students’ perceptions of the content in

the Swedish subject and current syllabus for Swedish in the third year of upper

secondary school. The purpose has also been to analyze if students are familiar with the

aims they are working towards, how explicit they are and if they have any significance

for the students’ results and motivation. This investigation is based on a socio-cultural

perspective and was made with help of a quantitative method by using questionnaires,

but has also been studied to some extent qualitatively, which have been analyzed from a

student angle.

The analysis of the results shows that the students have very good perception of

what they should study in Swedish year three in upper secondary school. The students

have also relatively good knowledge about learning presented by teachers, and that the

aims are presented in the beginning of the course. In addition to this, the study shows

other important elements that influence students’ results and motivation, such as

teachers’ competence, their ability to teach and engage the students and the relationship

between teacher and student.

The conclusion is that teachers in their interaction with students should be more

concrete and distinct, when presenting the aims anchored in the current curriculum.

They also need to adapt contents and methods to students’ capacity, in order to motivate

students and promote their ambition to get higher results and grades.

Finally, this is required to reverse the declining trend in Swedish school results.
