Abstract [en]

Finnish student have for several years proved to be successful in reading in international studies. This interview based study aims to describe how teachers in Finnish schools for Swedish speaking children are relating to reading and reading education during the first two years of schooling. The result shows that reading, reading training and reading comprehension are natural elements in all teaching during the first two years in school and that teaching is based on students’ ability and interest. The teachers claim that they provide the students with varying opportunities to practice different kinds of reading. Homework is used almost daily. The teachers in special education are working closely with the class teachers and extra assistance is quickly provided to students in need. The teachers in special education are working both in the classroom, in small groups and one to one with the students in need of special education. The teachers use tests but also rely on their own ability to find these students. All teachers claim that they use direct feedback to make the students aware of their ability and need of development.
