Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyze how a student with reading and writing difficulties functions together in a classroom with teachers and students. Related questions: Does the reaction from the other students strengthen self-confidence? How does the student react in reading and writing situations? The method used for the study was observations with a video camera. The student was filmed for 10 minutes in the middle of every lesson for three schooldays. Each situation involved text and reading situations to see how the student responded to these. The study indicates that the student often asked for help from a fellow-student for spelling, for instructions or to read something. The fellow-student filled an important task and most often guided the student through the text and encouraged the student to work. Even other students offered encouragement when they went by the desk. In situations where the students worked independently with a text the student became bored and lost inspiration to work. Different situations where the student required help were discussed with the teacher. This teacher felt that she had far too little time to take up the different situations and develop them. At the same time the teacher pointed out that there were insufficient resources to help this particular student. She had to spend much time just keeping order in the classroom. The implications of the study are that it is a responsibility of the school to create a secure environment for each student in the school. Everyone must feel that they are equally important and of equal value. Obviously each failure and the lack of confirmation from the teacher, reduces self confidence. This is a result of the teacher having too little time to sit down and explain things. Time is a serious problem. The question is Why is a teacher forced to continually make time priorities? The school system needs more resources to motivate each student and to prove to each student that they are important. These people are our future and unfortunately we risk destroying their self-confidence. It would be interesting to see if future research could prove how self-confidence can improve as more resources would be put in to each class.
