Teachers work in mathematics for students with language difficulties. : A study based on qualitative interviews. (English)
Abstract [en]

This work will focus on teachers' prevention for students with language difficulties so they don’t end up in mathematical difficulties. The purpose of this work is to see what methods, working methods, tools, skills and knowledge of teachers there is in a school in central Sweden. The study is based on qualitative interviews with five active teachers in grades 1-3 who teach in Swedish and mathematics, one of which is the first teacher of mathematics. A special educator who has much knowledge in language difficulties was also interviewed. What emerged in my research is that by working with many joint briefings, joint problem solving discussions to consolidate concepts and symbols it benefits all pupils not just those with late language development.

The usefulness of the study was to provide knowledge on how teachers can help students with language difficulties at an early stage, so they do not get into difficulties in mathematics. The aim has been to find out what different methods, procedures and working materials there are to facilitate for the students in mathematics, despite their late language development. 

Abstract [sv]

Detta arbete kommer att handla om lärarnas förebyggande arbete för elever med språksvårigheter så de inte ska hamna i matematiksvårigheter. Syftet med detta arbete är att se vilka metoder, arbetsätt, arbetsmaterial, kompetens och kunskaper det finns hos lärarna på en skola i mellersta Sverige. Studien bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med fem verksamma lärare i åk 1-3 som undervisar i svenska och matematik, varav en är förstelärare i matematik.

En specialpedagog har också intervjuats som har mycket kunskap om språksvårigheter. Det som framkommit i min undersökning är att genom att arbeta med många gemensamma genomgångar, gemensam problemlösning, diskussioner för att befästa begrepp och symboler gynnar det alla elever inte bara de med språksvårigheter.

Nyttan med studien har varit att bidra med kunskap om hur lärare kan hjälpa elever tidigt som har språksvårigheter, så de inte hamnar i matematiksvårigheter. Ambitionen har varit att komma fram till vilka olika metoder, arbetssätt och arbetsmaterial det finns för att underlätta hos eleverna i matematiken trots sina språksvårigheter.
