Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this study was to explore and increase understanding of how a team of colleagues at an upper-secondary school in Sweden works with students with special education needs. The team works with a group of students where the majority have experienced school failure in elementary school. The focus of the study has been to analyze a project that the school undertook 2013 to improve students’ results and improve their chances to successfully graduate from their program. Data was collected from relevant documents and interviews with members of the project at hand. The data was analyzed using a model based on theories about school as an institution and perspectives on special education. The result shows that the team, much due to the project, has developed a method to facilitate success for their students. The project has helped them put words on their unspoken strategies to support students with special education needs. This study shows that their method is based on the relationship between the student and the teacher and that the student’s success lies in that relationship.
