Abstract [en]

The purpose of this  paper is to investigate  how teachers and schools  work with  students  in need of Swedish as second  language.  The essay is based on five  teachers'  questionnaire answers.  Three of the teachers have the competence  to teach Swedish as a second language and two of the teachers lack the competence  but have the competence  to teach Swedish and have experience  of newly  arrived  students.  The survey questions  the respondents  answered are open and the teachers  have written  comprehensive  answers  on how they work  with and teach students  in need of Swedish  as second language.  I’ve had the opportunity  to send supplementary  questions  to the participants,  which  means that there are some similarities between interviews  and my  chosen method.  The result  shows that all teachers see the work on new words and concepts as a central  part of language  development  for newly  arrived students.  Understanding  of comprehension  is important  in understanding  textbooks butalso in discussion  and conversation.  Teachers  also see both the disadvantages  and advantages  of teaching  Swedish and the subject Swedish as a second language  at the same time  in one classroom.  An advantage  is that students  with Swedish as a second language can socialize  with  classmates  with  Swedish as their  first  language  and therefore  have the opportunity  to develop  the language.  One disadvantage  the teachers describe  is that the teacher may find  it difficult  to adapt the teaching  to Swedish  as the second language speaker's needs. Participants  also describe the importance  of working  cross-border to promote Swedish  as second language  learners,  language  development,  but also knowledge development.The conclusion  that I can deduce from the survey is that all teaching  and planning  for pupils  with  Swedish as a second language  should  be tailored  to the needs of each student. Whether  it's about where students  should  be placed, how to teach or what to teach, the teacher should  always  look after the student's  best.
