Experiences of intensive teaching : An interview study with students who participated in intensive instruction in reading (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur elever med läs- och skrivsvårigheter upplever det att delta i en intensivundervisningsinsats i läsning. En sådan insats innebär att eleverna varje dag under 4-6 veckor jobbar 20 minuter med strukturerad undervisning som har syftet att utveckla deras läsförmåga. Den forskning som jag har funnit om intensivundervisning i läsning visar samstämmigt på att liknande insatser ger goda resultat. Däremot tar inte denna forskning upp hur eleverna upplever själva intensivundervisningen. Därför har jag valt att undersöka några elevers upplevelser av detta och fokuserat på upplevelsen av arbetssättet, upplevelsen av den egna läsutvecklingen samt hur det är att gå ifrån klassrummet för att delta i intensivundervisningen.


Studien bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med sex elever i årskurs 4 som har deltagit i en intensivundervisningsinsats i läsning. Varje elev har intervjuats enskilt och deras berättelser har sedan analyserats utifrån en livsvärldsfenomenologisk ansats ur ett elevperspektiv.


Resultatet visar att dessa elever är positiva till att arbeta med intensivundervisning i läsning och upplever själva att de har utvecklat sin läsförmåga genom den. De beskriver sin egen utveckling i relation till det material de har arbetat med samt vad det har inneburit för dem både i skolan och hemma. Eleverna tar upp både positiva och negativa upplevelser av att gå ifrån klassrummet för att delta i intensivundervisningen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how students with reading and writing disabilities experienced participation in intensive instruction in reading. Such an achievement means that students every day for 4-6 weeks is working about 20 minutes with structured teaching with the aim of developing their reading skills. The research about intensive instruction in reading coherently show that similar achievements are producing good results. In contrast, this research does not include how students experience intensive instruction. Therefore, I have chosen to examine some students' experiences of this and focused on the experience of working, the experience of their own reading development and how it is to leave the classroom to participate in intensive instruction.


The study is based on qualitative interviews with six students in grade 4 who have participated in intensive instruction in reading. Each student was interviewed individually and their stories were then analysed based on a life-world phenomenological approach from a student perspective.


The result shows that these students are positive towards working with intensive instruction in reading and experience themselves having developed their reading skills through it. They describe their own development in relation to the material they have worked with and what it has meant to them both in school and at home. The students mention both positive and negative experiences of leaving the classroom to participate in intensive instruction.
