The article is about the teaching and learning of writing in years 4 to 6 of compulsory schooling, where the pupils write argumentative and explanatory texts. Methods and concepts from linguistic theories of text analysis (Fairclough, 1995; Halliday, 1978;Mann, Matthiessen & Thompson, 1992) have been further developed for the analysis of the teaching practice. These methods and analytical tools have not previously been applied to teaching practices. My aim is to show how teaching practice can be understood as a linguistic activity and analysed as a kind of text. Alongside this, the paper seeks to understand the creation of meaning in teaching activities and how text analysis can be understood in relation to pupils’ meaning-making. A comparison between text and practice becomes possible as the analytic tools are the same.The results show that text and practice analysis can be linked to the analysis ofthe teacher’s meaning making. One conclusion is that the pupils develop knowledge during writing; they take hold of the whole text and they make meaning recursively when writing. The study shows that just as the pupils take a comprehensive approach to their texts, so the teacher takes a comprehensive overview of the teaching practice.The teacher takes charge, in a positive sense, of the practice so that pupils can understand and take responsibility for transforming knowledge into and through their texts.
