Primary teachers attitudes to reading comprehension : A qualitative study of reading comprehension in third year primary school (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to cast light on how three teachers in third grade state that they work with reading comprehension, which methods and strategies they use in their teaching to develop pupils reading comprehension. As previous research shows that the teaching of reading comprehension is important, the study addresses various methods that can be used in teaching and which methods the informers state that they use. Qualitative interviews have been made with teachers from primary school. The results show that teachers largely make use of textbooks in their teaching, but they start modifying towards explicit teaching. Methods that have been emphasized to enhance reading comprehension are reading aloud, quiet reading, a reading class and Thinking aloud. Reading aloud is an important method in the informers teaching and reading aloud is combined with the method Thinking aloud. The teachers are aware of the need of spending time on reading comprehension but find it easy to forget when something else has to be done.
