Svenska för utanförskap? : En intervjustudie med åtta före detta SVA-elever om rollen "andraspråkselev" i behov av särskild undervisning
Sammanfattning: In 1995, Swedish as a secondary language was formally established as an independent subject within the Swedish schooling system. The subject is meant to promote the progression of multilinguals within the Swedish language, but it is shown that there is some insecurity on how to organize and carry out the task. This insecurity is something that has caught my interest and sat the basis of this study. I have through out this study used a qualitative approach combined with the use of a semistructured interview technique. These interviews were analysed using a theoretical framework including social constructivism, social categorization and ethnical identity. The purpose of this study is to examine how eight former student of Swedish as a secondary language, born or since early age brought up in Sweden, relates themselves to the role of a student of a secondary language in need of special education. The following questions where raised: How do the participants relates themselves to the role of a student of a secondary language in need of special education? How are the participants positioned, by themselves and others, found in their own narrative? How did the role of a student of a secondary language influence the participants motivation, accomplishments and self-perception through their schooling? The participant gave a consistent view that it was not their actual language skills, but rather the fact of being bilingual, that was the basis of them being picked to attend Swedish as a secondary language classes. There was also a wast dissatisfaction regarding the role, which affected their motivation, performance and self-perception through out schooling.
