    Munkarna på heden: Cistercienserna i Herrevad2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    År 1144 anlände abbot Robert, elva konverser och nio lekmän från cisterciensklostret i Citeaux till Herrevad, där ärkebiskop Eskil upplåtit mark till dem för att bygga upp ett cistercienserkloster på då dansk mark. I 400 år tronade klostret på heden och blev ett maktcentrum i regionen. Klostermedlemmarna som vigt sitt liv åt att hedra och tjäna Gud blev därmed ett inslag i bygden som satt spår långt in i vår tid. Hantverk som klosterorden tog med sig och sedermera utvecklade blev också en del av bygdens. En bygd som med sin placering gav mycket tillbaka till dem som brukade den, det var perfekta förhållanden att driva ett självhushållande kloster i.

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att klargöra vilken denna klosterorden var för att på så vis kunna väcka ett nytt intresse för något som fallit i glömska inte bara på lokal nivå utan också som en del av Skånes historia. Fortsatt är intentionen med uppsatsen att peka på det som levt kvar i bygden och därmed blivit en del av dagens samhälle som vi kan tacka dessa medeltida munkar för.

    "Livet måste levas framlänges men förstås baklänges": en empirisk studie om lärares inställning till begreppen historiemedvetande samt genetiskt och genealogiskt perspektiv2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Som historielärare finns olika nyckelbegrepp som är centrala för ämnet historia. Tre av dessa kommer studeras i denna uppsats där syftet är att studera historiemedvetande samt de genetiska och genealogiska perspektiven i relation till lärares verklighet och de båda läroplanerna Lpf94 och Gy11. Dessa tre begrepp är därmed uppsatsens teoretiska utgångspunkter. Kvalitativa intervjuer har utförts för att söka svar på uppsatsens frågeställningar och då texter och intervjusvaren varit i behov av tolkning har den hermeneutiska metoden använts.

    Studien visar att begreppet historiemedvetande är mångtydigt och svårdefinierat, både för lärare, teoretiker och forskare. En annan slutsats som kunde dras av studien visar att historieundervisningen är präglad av den kronologiska traditionen, vilket även kan benämnas som det genetiska perspektivet. Vad gäller styrdokumenten är begreppet historiemedvetande svårdefinierat även där och den nuvarande Gy11 är mer inriktat på kronologi än den tidigare.

    Tidig läsinsats i förskoleklass: effekt av insats och elevers upplevelser2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A prerequisite in today´s society is to be able to read and write in order to be able to develop fully into a participant community citizen. The aim of the Swedish curriculum is for the pupils to learn to read and write so that they can benefit from the education (Skolverket, 2011a). The school should be able to meet all children´s differences and needs to fulfill this. Several research studies have shown that the earlier the pupils in the risk zone for reading difficulties are identified and the earlier cost-effective reading interventions are implemented the lower the risk of school failure. The purpose of this study was to analyze whether a specific teaching package supports the development of pupil´s knowledge of letters, letter sounds and word decoding. In addition, the pupil´s experiences of participation in the reading intervention were studied. The study included seven pre-school class pupils who were at risk for reading difficulties, they were randomized into a experimentgroup of four and a controlgroup of three pupils. When collecting data, both quantitative and qualitative methods were used. The pupils conducted a pre- and posttest in the form of the Swedish National Agency for Education´s mapping material for the preschool class (Skolverket, 2018). In addition, observation of the reading data sessions and interviews with the pupils were used after this was completed. As far as the measurable results about the pupil´s knowledge development were concerned there was a positive result, but it is not possible to draw any conclusions about the impact of the reading intervention.  Regarding the pupil´s experiences of the reading intervention they were positive to both the participation and reading. One conclusion we draw from this is that the playful element of the reading intervention together with the multisensory supplement probably contributed to the pupil´s finding it both joyful and motivating. From a special educational perspective early reading intervention enables inclusion and participation.

    "All we wanted to do, now that we were back in the world, was forget": on remembrance and forgetting in Julie Otsuka's novels2015In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 47, no 2, p. 81-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers Julie Otsuka's representations of the World-War-II internment of Japanese Americans in When the Emperor Was Divine (2002) and The Buddha in the Attic (2011) from the perspective of collective remembrance, thus highlighting the interconnectedness of remembrance, forgetting, silence and race. Remembering and forgetting are understood as contingent on one another, and on the ideological currents and countercurrents that affect the construction of collective remembrance. The article argues that the content and form of Otsuka's novels mediate the cultural silence of the internment. In addition, they illustrate the changing nature of the narrativized remembrance of the internment as accounts of the lived experience of the Japanese Americans who went to camp are being replaced by trans-generationally transmitted, imaginatively recreated memories. The historical silence of the incarceration and its aftermath is sometimes explained in terms of "Japanese culture," but such a description risks reducing the impact of the racialization of Japanese Americans, and obscuring its effect on resistance. Finally, the analysis demonstrates that in Otsuka's texts, remembrance of the internment is characterized by a negotiation between repressive erasure and restorative forgetting.

    Nostalgia, motherhood and adoption: two contemporary Swedish examples2019In: Humanities, ISSN 2076-0787, Vol. 8, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the notion of nostalgia in two recent Swedish narratives of transnational adoption: Christina Rickardsson’s Sluta aldrig gå, 2016, (published in English as Never Stop Walking in 2017), and Cilla Naumann’s Bära barnet hem (“Carrying the Child Home”, 2015). The two narratives deal with adoption from South America to Sweden, include autobiographical content, and enable a comparison between an adoptee memoir (Rickardsson) and a parent-authored text (Naumann). Both texts center on maternal images, but the analysis suggests that Rickardsson’s narrative echoes the borderland nostalgia characteristic of adoptee writing. The adoptee memoirs, being reflective in mode and restorative in purpose, occupy a borderland between the two forms of nostalgia described by Boym (2001), while interrogating the temporal, spatial and affiliative boundaries of transnational adoption. Naumann’s nostalgic enterprise incorporates the mirrors, doubles and ghosts of reflective nostalgia. These representations are a fruitful means to represent the “other” family, and the alternative lives that were left behind in the process of adoption. Ultimately, her text suggests the limitations of the autobiographical mode and illustrates the capacity of fiction to provide a symbolic register in which to articulate the unspeakable aspects of adoption.

    The "New Negro" in the Old World: culture and performance in James Weldon Johnson, Jessie Fauset, and Nella Larsen2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the relationship between the “New Negro” moment of the early twentieth-century America and the Old World of Europe, as represented in James Weldon Johnson’s The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man (1912), Jessie Fauset’s There is Confusion (1924), and Nella Larsen’s Quicksand (1928). In the nineteenth century, Europe functioned as a symbol of freedom, education and art in the African-American literary imagination. It is my contention that these notions are questioned in the novels of Johnson, Fauset and Larsen.

    The episodes set in Europe are seen as a lens through which the role of the African-American in Western civilization can be studied. The African-American artist/protagonists are seen as cultural intermediaries, who bridge Euro-American and African-American culture, national and folk culture, high and low culture. Their performances are here understood as crucially related to the geo-cultural symbolism of Europe. Performance is considered as a vital part of African-American identity formation, tallying with the double consciousness that DuBois identified as characteristic of the African-American. I suggest that in these novels, the trope of performance (based on double consciousness) is used to critique the notions of race and culture, whereby conceptions of racial essentialism and cultural authenticity are questioned. The novels themselves are also considered as performative acts that helped form the concept of a New Negro in the 1920s.

    To approach the social meaning of these novels, they can be contrasted with vernacular African-American art forms, here represented by music, such as blues, ragtime and jazz.Music, which plays an important part in all the novels, is analyzed in relation to the European-derived novel. This is a discussion in which the notion of authenticity surfaces, with regard to what constitutes a black identity and a “black text.” I argue that music here functions as an index of cultural identity and a motif through which this identity could be re-imagined. However, instead of offering simple affirmations of a shared black identity, the novels initiate discussions of what can and cannot signify “blackness.” The texts of Fauset and Larsen are particularly ambiguous in this respect, indicating the authors’ sensitiveness to the combined limitations of race and gender.

    Writing and Identity in Jane Jeong Trenka’s Life Narratives2017In: International Adoption in North American Literature and Culture: transnational, transracial and transcultural narratives / [ed] Mark Shackleton, Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, p. 121-142Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores the connection between writing and subjectivity in Jane Jeong Trenka’s two memoirs, The Language of Blood (2003) and Fugitive Visions (2009), suggesting that the two texts participate in a dialogue in which questions that were raised in the first work are revisited and reconsidered in the second. The result is a multilayered and at times conflicted life narrative, which offers no simple solutions to the complex questions of identity raised. While Trenka’s texts address the unspeakable aspects of adoption and the inability to recover parts of the past, they also address the materiality of adoption. Common adoption myths, such as the discourse of rescue, and the myth of color-blindness, are debunked. The chapter argues that there is a tension in the texts between the representation of adoption as trauma with individual as well as societal implications, and adoption as a productive site generating questions of identity and origin of universal relevance. Placing the form and act of narration in focus, the analysis suggests that the adoption narrative may function as an empowering imaginative space for the production of identity. In addition, the paper traces how sensory experiences are used to re-enact the past—or even instill new memories to replace the perceived gaps in the narrative of the past. The two texts suggest that an engagement with and translation of the non-verbal aspects of identity into text can provide acts of self-authorization that demonstrate the restorative potential of the transnational adoptee’s life narrative.

    Studenters inställning till fysisk aktivitet på recept - Ger yrkesutbildningen förutsättningar för studenterna att arbeta med metoden?2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är vetenskapligt underbyggt att det finns ett tydligt samband mellan omfattning av fysisk aktivitet och hälsotillstånd. Genom att öka den fysiska aktiviteten går det att komma åt en av de stora grundorsakerna till vällevnadssjukdomar, fysisk inaktivitet. Fysisk aktivitet på recept (FaR) är en metod i ett steg mot en mer hälsofrämjande hälso- och sjukvård och för att etablera en långsiktig förändring av samhällets syn på fysisk aktivitet. Utvärderingar visar såhär långt att mer motivation och kunskap krävs hos vårdpersonalen för att arbeta efter FaR-metoden. Syftet är att undersöka attityden till FaR bland sista-termins studenter på läkar-, sjuksköterske-, sjukgymnast- och arbetsterapeut- utbildningen, samt om utbildningarna gett förutsättningar att kunna arbeta med metoden i framtiden. Metoden som användes var en kvantitativ enkätundersökning och genomfördes vid två lärosäten i Skåne län. Resultatet visade att studenternas attityd till FaR var positiv. Respondenterna visade dock ingen sammanhållen bild av innehållet utbildningarna. Diskussionen handlar till stor del om att redan i utbildningen introducera FaR så att studenterna känner självförmåga att hantera metoden i framtiden. Det anser vi kan skapa goda förutsättningar till ett positivt bemötande av FaR-metoden ute i arbetslivet.

    Studies show that regular, frequent physical activity can lead to a range of health benefits and prevent chronic illnesses. “Exercise on prescription” has emerged from the desire to have a more health promoting approach in the medical service and also to develop more active lifestyles. Evaluations show that practitioners need more knowledge and motivation in order to work with “exercise on prescription” interventions. The purpose of this study was to examine the attitudes towards “exercise on prescription” amongst last-term students on medical training, nurse training, physiotherapist- and occupational therapist training. And also examine if the vocational training has given the prerequisite to work with the method. Quantitative data analysis was used by handing out questionnaires to the students at two universities in the southern part of Sweden. Results show that the students expressed positive attitudes toward exercise on prescription but there is insecurity about their knowledge and readiness to work with it. Conclusions we made were that education can increase the students self-efficacy which we believe can provide for the students’ readiness to work with “exercise on prescription” in the future.

    Toftaholms utmark: en inventering av natur- och kulturvärden två år efter stormen Gudrun2008In: Tsunami, ISSN 1651-5803, no 2Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    I samband med stormen Gudrun 2005 föll 70-75 miljoner m³ skog i Sverige. Många människor drabbades hårt ekonomiskt och känslomässigt, men finns det inte också något positivt i tragiken? Vilka fördelar skulle kunna uppstå ur denna omfattande och omskakande händelse i skogssverige? Rapporten om Toftaholms utmark syftar till att synliggöra de natur- och kulturvärden som bildats eller fått möjlighet att framlyftas tack vare stormen. En undersökning har gjorts av vilka naturvärden som uppkom i Toftaholmsområdet samt hur de skiljer sig åt mellan Natura 2000-området och produktionsskogen intill. ”Följde” Gudrun de rekommendationer som finns för skogsvård angående naturvärden? Många kulturvärden har varit gömda i hektar av granskog. Då stormen skapade fält av rotvältor framträder dessa kulturhistoriska skatter tydligare. När de stormfällda ytorna nu återplanteras finns risken att de åter faller i glömska. Vad kan vi göra för att dessa värden inte ska döljas och kanske gå förlorade? Finns det möjlighet att efter stormen sammanföra och kombinera olika intressen så som natur- kultur- och ekonomi, och på så sätt bevara flera av landskapets värden?

    Integration på två arbetsplatser2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Begreppet mångfald diskuteras allt oftare i samhällsdebatten och valet av uppsatsämne kändes därför naturligt. Syftet med vår undersökning var att beskriva etnisk mångfald och integration på två arbetsplatser inom bankvärlden.

    Undersökningen genomfördes på två banker som aktivt valt att anställa invandrare. Vi använde oss av en kvalitativ metod och halvstrukturerade intervjuer och genomförde totalt tio stycken. Resultaten visade att bankerna befinner sig i ett startskede där det än så länge främst är i rekryteringsprocessen samt inom ramen för kundanpassning som tankar om tillvaratagande av etnisk mångfald återfinns. Det finns även en skillnad vad gäller hur de anställda med utländsk bakgrund integrerats i bankerna. I Bank 1 har det skett en viss anpassning till den svenska majoritetskulturens normer och värderingar och övervägande återfinns ett tillvaratagande av olikhet på grund av kulturell bakgrund inom arbetsgruppen. I Bank 2 har det främst skett en anpassning till majoritetskulturen och olikhet betonas inte.

    De anställdas upplevelse av att ha blivit anställda på grund av sina språkkunskaper är positiv och deras arbetssituation beskrivs som tillfredställande. Den påstådda ojämlikheten i samhället där människor med utländsk bakgrund är underordnade dem med svensk bakgrund återspeglas till viss del i de undersökta bankerna.

    Patientens informationsbehov efter hjärtinfarkt2009Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bakgrund: Insjuknandet i hjärtinfarkt är oftast akut och kan påverka patienten under en lång tid. Vårdtiden är kort och patienten drabbas ofta av en kris. Förutom adekvat behandling behövs information för att känna trygghet och för att kunna göra livsstilsförändringar som förebygger återinsjuknande. Sjuksköterskan kan vägleda och motivera till ett hälsosammare liv både under och efter sjukhusvistelsen. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva patientens informationsbehov vid hjärtinfarkt under och efter sjukhusvistelsen. Metod: En litteraturstudie har gjorts där 13 vetenskapliga artiklar har granskats. Resultat: Patienterna önskade information från olika källor. Informationen skulle vara lättförståelig och samstämmig. Individuell information var viktig och skulle vara uppdelad på flera tillfällen. Informationsbehovet såg olika ut beroende på om patienten var inskriven på sjukhus eller hade kommit hem. Slutsats: Patientundervisning under sjukhusvistelsen och efter utskrivningen är nödvändigt för att minska den informationsbrist som många patienter upplever efter hemkomst. Ett samarbete behövs mellan slutenvården och primärvården då all information inte kan ges vid ett tillfälle. Detta skulle kunna vara kostnadseffektivt då risken för återinsjuknande troligtvis minskar för en patient som är välinformerad.

    Är barns bilder språk?1991Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    "Är barns bilder språk?" Det traditionella språkbegreppet har ändrat karaktär. Begrepp tenderar att bli utslitna - så även begreppet "språk". Bildspråk är en av byggstenarna i vår kommunikation.

    I denna bok presenteras en bildpedagogisk metod för barn i åldrarna 2-7 år. Författaren delar med sig av sina egna bildpedagogiska erfarenheter. Med många exempel i ord och bild visar hon hur en bildspråklig medvetenhet kan utvecklas hos barn. Inte minst framgår hur roligt barnen ofta tycker det är att prata om sina bilder, i synnerhet när de vuxna själva har utvecklat sitt bildkunnande. Här behandlas sådant som färgblandning, modellteckning och diktillustrering. Bildanalys pekar på vad som kan upptäckas i barnens bilder. Här finns dessutom en översikt över bildpedagogikens historia och dess olika teorier.

    Den välillustrerade boken ger en utmärkt grund för pedagoger - och föräldrar - som vill stimulera barnen att uttrycka sig i bild.

    Betydelsen av fysisk aktivitet i och utanför två förskolor2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen handlar om förskolebarns fysiska aktivitet. Syftet var att få kunskap om betydelsen av barns fysiska aktivitet i och utanför förskolan, samt att få reda på hur aktiva barn är. Vi har använt oss av enkätundersökningar som riktar sig till pedagoger och föräldrar, stegräknare som vi har fäst på barnen och så har vi haft samtal med barnen. Resultatet av enkätundersökningarna visar att både pedagoger och föräldrar är medvetna om barns fysiska behov. Ett av de resultat som vi har sett efter att ha använt stegräknare är att barn är mer aktiva om de har gymnastik eller om de vistas utomhus jämfört med om de är inne i förskolan. När vi har tittat på samtalsresultaten visar det att barnen har mer fysiskt ansträngande aktiviteter när de är ute, som t.ex. cykla och klättra, och när de har gymnastik där de springer och hoppar mycket, jämfört med när de är inomhus då de gärna ritar och målar eller leker med leksaker.

    Appreciating literature: a focus on lexis in second language reading2014In: Text analysis: culture, framework & teaching: conference proceedings from the Text Analysis Symposium at Kristianstad University, April 2014 / [ed] Jane Mattisson, Maria Bäcke, Kristianstad: Kristianstad University Press , 2014, p. 88-96Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The appreciation of literature depends on the reader’s ability to understand the author’s use of words — how they are used individually to express explicit and indirect meaning, how they are used in partnership with others to make up set phrases, and how meaning can be distorted for literary purposes by changing a phrase or the order of words in a phrase, all within a specific cultural context. The educated first language reader, familiar with the context, is equipped to read between the lines and achieve a fuller understanding of the text in question. However, for second language readers, lacking that lexical and cultural knowledge, the situation is different and they are at a disadvantage in terms of being able to understand a work of literature. Teachers of English can help their pupils by drawing their attention to words — which words are used and how they are used. Support for this assertion can be found in the research into second language vocabulary acquisition. This tells us that readers need to know at least 95% of words in a text in order to understand that text, and that words must be encountered many times if they are to be learnt. The point of actively working with words over a period of time is twofold: firstly, to increase the reader’s lexical resource in terms of both number of words known and depth of knowledge about them, and secondly, by so doing, to increase the reader’s ability to understand, and therefore appreciate, literary texts. With reference to The Great Gatsby, I will illustrate how teachers of English to university students can extend their learners’ lexical knowledge and appreciation of literature.

    Motivating teens to speak English through group work in Storyline2019In: ELT Journal, ISSN 0951-0893, E-ISSN 1477-4526Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Overcoming the reluctance of teenage learners to speak in the language classroom is a challenge for many teachers. This article reports on a study in which 60 Swedish pupils, aged 15–16, took part in a Storyline project based on a young adult fantasy novel. In the Storyline approach, a fictive world is created when learners, taking on the roles of characters in a story, collaborate on tasks to develop the story. A key feature is that the learners work in the same small groups for much of the time. During the six-week period of this study, these learners used English in a variety of speaking and writing tasks. The project showed a number of benefits, the most important of which were an increase in their motivation to speak English and enhanced self-confidence through doing so.

    ‘Storyline’: a task-based approach for the young learner classroom2013In: ELT Journal, ISSN 0951-0893, E-ISSN 1477-4526, Vol. 67, no 1, p. 41-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Storyline approach is little known in language teaching contexts although it has much in common with task-based education. Learners play the parts of characters in an unfolding narrative, collaborating on tasks in small groups, a method which combines the use of language skills with practical work. A word often used by participants in a Storyline topic is `fun′. This article reports on a study in which I attempted to identify the features that particularly appealed to a class of Swedish 11–13 year olds, and how working in this way impacted on their learning of English. The data show that learners were strongly motivated by particular tasks and that the experience of taking part in a Storyline brought specific language benefits.

    Storyline: developing communicative competence in English2013Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What do you do when someone dumps rubbish in your street? How do you deal with anti-social neighbours? How do you organize a street party? These are some of the questions faced by a class of 11–13 year olds working on “Storyline, Our Sustainable Street”. For five weeks they took on the roles of families who had moved into a newly built street in the fictive English town of Danbury. Working on tasks linked to the syllabus for English, they developed their skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing – and had fun.

    Developing communicative competence in English is of central importance in the Swedish curriculum Lgr11. This book presents the results of a study into the impact of the Storyline approach on the second language classroom. It also provides excellent guidance for teacher education students and teachers of both younger and older pupils (aged 9–16) in how to adapt this Storyline for their own classes.

    The Storyline approach: promoting learning through cooperation in the second language classroom2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Storyline approach a fictive world is created in the classroom. Learners create and take on the role of characters in a story (lasting typically for four to six weeks), which develops as they work in small groups on practical and theoretical tasks linked to the curriculum. The approach offers conditions considered to promote second language development in young learners, namely an engaging, meaningful and motivational context in which communicative language skills are practised holistically. The word learners most commonly use to describe learning English through Storyline is `fun´; one aspect of the work which rates particularly highly is group collaboration. This presentation is based on a research study, Storyline, Our Sustainable Street, in which a class of Swedish 11-13 year olds created families who moved into a new street in a fictive English town. During the course of the Storyline the families took part in a project to live in a more sustainable way, and also had to deal with the problems of illegal rubbish dumping and anti-social neighbours. I will demonstrate how cooperative principles are integral to group tasks in Storyline and how, through cooperation, communicative language skills are developed.

    The storyline approach in teacher education2016In: Lärarlärdom 2016: Högskolan Kristianstad / [ed] Claes Dahlqvist & Stefan Larsson, Högskolan Kristianstad: Kristianstad University Press , 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For many primary student teachers, English at school was characterized by a diet of textbooks, public teacher correction and peer ridicule. Such students approach English in teacher education with a lack of enthusiasm, even dread. If we are to produce competent, enthusiastic professionals, this must change. In English didactics, the objectives at Kristianstad University are 1) that students develop language proficiency and theoretical knowledge 2) understand how English can be taught creatively and be able to demonstrate this in practical and written assignments.

    Classroom relationships are often said to lie at the heart of successful language learning (Stevick, 1980). One example of a relational pedagogy, which fosters cooperation and mutual support, is Storyline, in which a fictive world is created in the classroom. A story develops as learners, in small groups as characters in a story, work on a range of meaningful tasks, combining theoretical and aesthetic subjects. At Kristianstad University, student teachers work for two weeks intensively on a Storyline about families moving into a new street in a fictive English town, using English in different ways. At the same time, they analyse what they are learning and how. This has a number of benefits. By working with Storyline, as opposed to just reading about it, the students experience its pedagogical benefits, and not just for the teaching of English. At the same time, their proficiency develops, not least because they are working closely and intensively together on motivating tasks in a supportive classroom atmosphere.

    Hattie (2009) contends that achievement is higher where there is enjoyment. Storyline helps to raise achievement levels because it engages affectively and cognitively, helps to forge closer classroom relationships and through practical work makes visible abstract content (for example, educational and linguistic theories), thus facilitating student learning, as this paper will demonstrate.

    `When it's fun you learn more!´: Storyline and the young language learner2012In: English for young learners - forum 2012: proceedings from the conference in Uppsala 19 June 2012 / [ed] Maria Allström, Annamaria Pinter, Uppsala: Centre for Professional Development and Internationalisation in Schools, Uppsala University , 2012, p. 28-38Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Storyline approach a fictive world is created in the classroom. Working in small groups, the learners create characters to people a story, speaking and writing in role. The story develops as the learners work on open key questions, based on curriculum content and integrating linguistic and practical skills. A word often used by participants in a Storyline topic is `fun´. I investigated which features of the Storyline approach particularly appealed to a class of 11-13 year-olds who took part in Our Sustainable Street and what impact working in this way had on their learning of English This paper reports on that study, which concluded that the Storyline approach offers significant benefits for the development of communicative competence, and shows how Storyline can meet the requirements of the curriculum.
