Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen behandlar ämnet Svenska som andraspråk och syftet har varit att dokumentera och utvärdera omorganisationen för ämnet på en gymnasieskola. Syftet har också varit att utvärdera vad eleverna själva anser om sin språkutveckling, syn på kultur och identitet samt om deras motivation har ökat i ämnet efter omorganisationen och ett avslutat kulturtema. Metoden som har använts är samtal med lärarna, enkäter och djupintervjuer med elever som har varit med om omorganisationen. Resultatet visar att lärarna har genom att omorganisera sitt arbete ökat elevernas språkutveckling och motivation. Omorganisationen innebar ett temainriktat arbetssätt och här belystes temat Språk, kultur och identitet som har lett till ökad medvetenhet för begrepp som identitet, etnicitet och kultur. Vidare har omorganisationen lett till bättre dokumentation, vilket har visat sig vara positivt både för lärare och elever. Förutom språkutvecklingen ser lärarna att frånvaron har minskat och ämnets status har höjts både hos elever och lärare på skolan.

Abstract [en]

This essay is about the school subject Swedish as a second language and the aim was to document and to evaluate a reorganization of the same at an upper secondary school. The aim was also to evaluate what the students think of their own language development, their views on culture and identity and if their motivation has increased after the reorganization as well as after working with a theme that was about culture. The method that has been used is conversation with the teachers of this subject, a questionnaire and interviews with students who have experienced the reorganization. The results show that the teachers have managed to increase the students’ language development and motivation for the subject by reorganizing it. After the reorganization the teachers have taught on the basis of themes and this study describes one of these, which is called Language, Culture and Identity. This theme has led to an increased awareness for words such as identity, ethnicity and culture. Furthermore, the described reorganization has led to better documentation of the students’ work in class which has turned out to be very helpful, for teachers as well as students. Apart from a better language development the teachers see that the student absence has decreased and the status of the subject has improved among students and teachers of other subjects at the school.
