When my words aren't enough : A qualitative study about art teachers’ choices of strategies when educating newly arrived pupils who do not fully understand the Swedish language (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att analysera hur tre bildlärare på högstadiet bedriver sin bildundervisning av nyanlända elever som ännu inte till fullo behärskar svenska språket. Frågeställningarna innefattar olika strategier i bildundervisningen samt vilka problem och möjligheter lärarna upplever i en undervisning utan gemensamt talat språk. Studien innefattar tre semistrukturerade intervjuer – två muntliga och en skriftlig. Resultatet visar att samtliga lärare hade utarbetat och var i färd att utveckla en mängd olika strategier. Bildämnets multimodala resurser och de nyanlända elevernas flerspråkighet var centrala strategier för att överbrygga språkbarriären och skapa förståelse i ämnet. Främst två av lärarna ville även vidareutveckla undervisningen genom utökat kollegialt samarbete. Problemen lärarna uppfattade handlade till stor del om tidsbrist.  För att främja de nyanlända elevernas lärandesituation behövde exempelvis en av lärarna mer tid tillsammans med dem innan de började i ordinarie bildundervisning. Lärarna nämnde många möjligheter angående bildämnets resurser som medel för förståelse, samt möjligheter med att använda elevernas starkaste språk vid bedömning av teoretiska delar. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to analyze how three high school art teachers educate newly arrived pupils who do not fully understand the Swedish language. The issues contain how the teachers work with certain strategies and what kind of problems and possibilities they perceive when teaching without a common spoken language. The study includes three semi structured interviews – two oral and one written. The results illustrate that all of the teachers had developed, and were in the process of developing, a variety of strategies. Central strategies in creating understanding were multimodal resources specific for the art subject, and the newly arrived pupils’ multilingualism. Mainly two of the teachers wanted to develop their education further through expanded collegiate corporation. The problems that the teachers perceived mainly had to do with lack of time. To better support the newly arrived pupils’ learning situation the teachers needed more time together with the pupils, before they entered the ordinary classes. The teachers mentioned several possibilities concerning the art subjects’ resources as tools in understanding each other. They also emphasized the possibilities of using the pupils’ strongest language in the matter of theoretical assessment.
