Improving pupils’ reading comprehension. : Teachers’ ways of supporting 5th grade pupils to improve their reading comprehension (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose ot this study is to investigate how two teachers of fifth grade say they are working with reading comprehension in their teaching. Furthermore the aim is to investigate how the teachers' instruction in reading cmprehension expresses itself. The study was conducted from a teachers perspective and the questions that the stydy will answer are: How do two teachers in fifth grade believe they should teach in order to develop reading comprehension among their own students, and what methods, activities and materials are the teachers using in order to develop students' reading omprehension in the educational practise. The methods used during the study were interviews and observations. The observations were made in order to complete the picture from the interviews. The result show that two teachers in the same munipicality represent two different teaching methods. One teacher represents the reciprocal method and the other teacher represents a practise where the focus is on the individual to develop their own reading comprehension through individual work. The conclusions are: all students need support and help from other students and teachers to develop their reading comprehension and a system should be developed to enable  all teachers to receive training and knowledge of successful methods for developing reading comprehension based on resarch.
