Choices and compensation : - a study of the way teachers work with the material ABC-klubben (English)
This study, based on the socio-cultural theory of the book as a mediating tool, examines how four teachers say they work with the reader ABC-klubben. This is done with a focus on how they reason about choosing the level of readers for the pupils and about what compensation, if any, they make for pupils who read the simpler book and therefore miss the more difficult words and expressions. The result shows that all the teachers say that they take the pupils’ motivation for and pleasure in reading as an important ground for the decision as to which reader a pupil should use, and that this decision is taken with a focus on the individual. When it comes to compensation for the pupils who read the simpler book, the teachers do not describe consistently focused work on this, but they describe a similar way of working whereby they nevertheless acquaint these pupils with the more difficult book and the harder words and expressions. The conclusion of the study is that the teachers use many different methods to determine a pupil’s reading ability and hence which book is reasonable for the pupil to read, and one of the methods described is based on reading tests. Other methods are based on experience and the teachers’ own ability.
