Boys' perception of reading : - A study in grades 4–6 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to inquire into how boys in grade 4–6 perceive reading. Connected to the purpose five question formulations were elaborated, regarding perceptions of reading, strategies whilst reading, causes of reading at home and lastly evaluations. To attain the purpose of the study two substudies were executed – substudy 1: an interview study, and substudy 2: an appraisal study. For substudy 1 I interviewed six boys throughout grades 4–6 in one Swedish school. The result tells us that the boys are not enough encouraged to read fiction. The result also tells us that lack of strategies whilst reading fiction is inhibiting of reading skills for the boys. For substudy 2 a survey was performed with totally ten pupils where they got to answer six questions regarding reading. The material was analyzed by the categorization of evaluations through the appraisal analyzing model and its subsystem of attitudes. The result tells us that there are as many positive as negative evaluations, and the main group appreciation is the group that most evaluations belong to.
