When the teacher becomes a student : A qualitative study of argumentative texts written by teachers (English)
Abstract [en]

The present study aims to examine how teachers write polemical articles. This genre often occurs in national standardized tests in Swedish schools. The study seeks to analyze argumentative structures in the articles. It also categorizes assessment notes written by the teachers in response to each others’ articles, by interpreting response texts.

    The examination shows that there is uncertainty among the teachers about how to create structures in argumentative text types. As a result the persuasive function of the texts suffers.

    The teachers tend to comment on macro level findings in texts. However they grade each other’s texts with high grades referring to micro level components such as spelling, sentence structure and neat wording.
