The Ability to Read on, In-Between and Beyond the Lines : A Study of Teachers' Attitudes Towards Teaching Reading Comprehension in the Early Years of Elementary School (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how teachers working in grades 1–3 of secondary

school think that reading comprehension should be taught so that the pupils will be able to reach the learning goals in grade 3. The study applies a qualitative method whereby three teachers who worked in the early years of school each took part in a semi- structured interview. An interview guide was used as a data collection instrument and the interviews were documented by audio recording. Collected data were then analysed for meaning content with a phenomenographic approach. The result shows that the most common perception of the concept of reading comprehension is the ability to read between the lines and to retell a text in one’s own words. The view of reading comprehension was also seen to affect the way the teaching is done, and a shared view was found in the way of talking about different texts and asking questions to give the pupils practice in metacognition while reading. The result also shows that the teachers’ differing educational background influences the methods they use when training reading strategies, and the view of reading comprehension also affects how they think assessment should be done.
