    En funktionell tradition?2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Because Swedish teachers rely heavily on teaching materials in the form of grammar education, the content and structure thereof should be important for which knowledge is taught. The purpose of the present study is to analyse and problematise how teaching materials for the college preparatory course Swedish 2 structure the sections dealing with grammar. The empirical material of the study consists of five teaching materials for the upper secondary school subject Swedish 2, which were analysed on the basis of qualitative text analyses. The results of the study showed that the teaching materials are characterised by either a functional grammar, where the grammar is seen as a normative tool for writing, or as a static and unproblematised conceptual knowledge. Furthermore, it is also shown that many of the study's teaching materials have shortcomings and are far from always completely in line with the curriculum’s objectives. There is also a significant difference between the school grammar presented in the study's teaching materials and the one that linguistics advocates. This suggests that it is highly central to question the legitimacy of the teaching materials. Finally, it is concluded that the teaching materials should be removed from the traditional grammar description so that teachers can choose teaching materials whose grammar sections are similar to linguistics.

    Det är ett korsord: Barns uppfattningar av symbolsystemet Bliss2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka hur barnen tolkar symboler med fokus på symbolspråket Bliss. Fyra aktiviteter genomfördes med en barngrupp på en förskola. Metoden för insamlande av material var genom deltagande observation, ljudinspelning, fältanteckningar, att föra dialog och ställa frågor till barnen. Det insamlade materialet analyserades och delades in i temaområden vilka var: hur barnen tolkar symboler och vilka strategier använder barnen sig av när de tolkar symboler. Resultatet visar att barnen tolkar symboler bland annat genom tidigare erfarenheter och visuell transparens. Slutsatser som dragits är att barn uppfattar och tolkar symboler omkring sig och har lättare att läsa av symboler med hög visuell transparens.

    "According to Marian Keyes": a discussion of common themes in Marian Keyes’s chick lit novels: Lucy sullivan is getting married and Watermelon2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines Marian Keyes's views on love, happiness, setbacks and unfaithfulness which are common themes in her novels. These themes are discussed in Keyes's chick lit novels "Watermelon" and "Lucy Sullivan is getting married". Some background information about this genre is also presented. Finally, it becomes evident that Marian Keyes has used a lot of her own experiences when writing these novels, in terms of love, happiness and obstacles in finding love and happiness.

    Idealized Gendered Behaviors in The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Suzanne Collin’s trilogy The Hunger Games has become an international bestseller, and tells the story about Katniss Everdeen, a young citizen of District 12 in Panem. The object of this essay is to demonstrate that nurturing, being a warrior and pursuing beauty are the most idealized behaviors in The Hunger Games trilogy. By analyzing these behaviors from a gender perspective, based on the standpoint of Western society, I demonstrate how nurturing and pursuing beauty are feminine behaviors, and being a warrior is a masculine behavior. Furthermore, I outline how the characters’ behavior reflects their upbringings or the circumstances they are in. I conclude by considering what the popularity of Collins’s series indicates about contemporary perceptions of these behaviors, that are traditionally deemed as feminine or masculine in Western society. The result of the analysis indicates that the characters are being rewarded for both feminine and masculine behaviors. However, the characters showing a combination of both feminine and masculine traits gain more than the characters that possess either feminine or masculine qualities only. The contemporary views on femininity and masculinity are changing in Western society, and The Hunger Games trilogy gives us an indication about today’s view on the gendered behaviors in this essay.

    Nyckeln till de kinesiska skrivtecknen: Ett utvecklingsarbete i hur kunskap om tecknens komponenter och uppbyggnad kan främja inlärningen av kinesiska skrivtecken i den svenska skolan.2019Student paper other, 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For a westerner or any other person who comes from a language background where the alphabet is used to form words and sentences, Chinese is one of the most difficult languages for second language learners. Especially the mastering of the Chinese written language is deemed by a majority of Chinese language students as the most difficult part of learning Chinese. This study investigates how a pedagogic teaching method called meaningful interpretation and chunking can assist students in acquiring the skills of reading and writing Chinese characters. To facilitate the transfer of new knowledge, it is important to bring meaning and sense to what the students are asked to learn. For the novice, Chinese characters may seem like randomly assembled strokes which are hard to comprehend. With this thesis I have wanted to highlight the value of using a teaching method that thoroughly analyzes and explains the different radicals and components of the Chinese characters, such a method, will not only increase students’ understanding of the characters, it will also work towards ensuring that the characters’ form and meaning stay in the students’ memory so they can be reproduced at a later point in time.

    Så här gör pojkarna var de går, och var de sitter och var de står.: Om flickors och pojkars olika sätt att konstruera sig som svenskämneselever i år 4.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 240 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I have researched how pupils behave in the classroom during their Swedish lessons and how their behaviour differ on the basis of their gender. Research show that boys, to a greater extent than girls, demand more attention in the way they express themselves, both physiologically and orally.  It is proved that already from birth we have different expectations on boys and girls and this influences how they construct themselves as gender.

     

    During the spring of 2019 I have observed 19 primary school pupils whilst in their Swedish lessons. I watched and listened for patterns of behaviour in the classroom; if the boys talked more than the girls and if so; in what way? I was also curious to find out if there were pupils who chose to never speak, and if so; why?

     

    The result of my study showed that the boys had a more vigorous body language than the girls and therefore claimed more attention in the classroom by putting their opinion across, often uninvited. The girls were more likely to sit in their places and raised their hands when they wanted to speak. Recognising that pupils, depending on their gender, conduct themselves differently in the classroom could be used as a tool not just for myself but for other teachers in order to give both boys and girls equal opportunity to expressing themselves and to create a gender equal classroom environment.

    Are metaphors worth teaching?: A study about the relation between the use of metaphors in L2 writing and high grades in the National test of English for year 9 in the compulsory education in Sweden.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present study offers an initial exploration of the implications of metaphoric competence in L2 writing in the Swedish educational context. Metaphors from a cognitive perspective, are a core part of our daily lives. Moreover, they are a reflection of our thoughts and cognition, and an important part of every student learning path towards mastering a second language. The development of metaphoric competence, which includes the ability to understand and produce metaphors, can contribute substantially to second language proficiency. This paper examines the extent to which students obtaining the highest grades in the Swedish national test for grade 9 use metaphors in comparison to students who get the lowest grades and see whether there is a difference in the metaphoric comptence among students. For the study, 20 essays were analysed using the metaphor identification procedure (MIP). Finally, the paper explores the educational implications of these results in the EFL classroom.
