”Det är kul att läsa om man hittar en bra bok”: En studie om bokval i gymnasieskolan och de faktorer som påverkar valen
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis is about choosing literary works (fiction) to read in upper secondary school and the factors influencing these choices. I have performed qualitative interviews in order to explore this from three different perspectives, namely the teachers, the students and the school librarians at two different schools. The reason behind why I chose to write this thesis is the decline in reading comprehension among Swedish students in recent years (PISA 2012). I wanted to further examine whether the books that the students have to read have any effect on their motivation to read. This study shows that when the students get to choose books themselves they maintain an intrinsic motivation and that when the teachers choose they are more prone to be driven by extrinsic motivation. However, the teachers participating in this study tend to use group sets of books which share the same theme for the students to choose from instead of letting them read their independent choices. I hope that the conclusions from this thesis can shed some light on how teachers should relate to the book choice and the importance of it.
