"Det flyter på bättre när man läser sången, för när jag läser vanligt så ljudar jag nästan jämt och det gör jag inte när jag sjunger": Att arbeta med sång och musik som verktyg i elevers språk- och läsutveckling

Abstract [en]

The aim of this case study is to find out how pupils and their teacher describe the experiences of working with song and music in a language and reading development project. Qualitative focus group interviews with the students and an interview with the class teacher have been carried out.  A socio-cultural perspective on language, learning and alternative methods, together with previous research and literature on the subject, has been used to analyze, interpret and compile the data collected. The study shows how the students and their teachers describe and understand lyrics, compared to other texts that the students read. It also shows the possibilities and obstacles the students and the class teacher experience when working with music as a compliment to the ordinary teaching in the classroom. The results of the study show that the experiences the students and the teacher talk about is how fun and stimulating it has been to work with the song and the music as a part of reading class. The teacher states that she, together with the class, creates a feeling of togetherness through the song and music project. A conclusion of the study is that the students and the teacher recognize that singing and music can be used as tools to benefit students in their language and reading development. An important conclusion is also that the teacher could see that the students with reading difficulties, who otherwise are not attracted to read texts, have – by the help of music and lyrics – become more motivated and interested in reading.
