Title Storytelling and language development
Author(s) Wallin, Janni

English abstract
Since storytelling is a growing form of teaching we wanted to interview teachers to see what their experiences and opinions were on the subject. Our purpose was to investigate how teachers find working with storytelling and how it is related to language development. With help from our supervisor we were able to decide our interview questions that would help us answer our research question. After our interviews we reviewed the answers and analyzed them. We chose to have thematic rubrics in our results section. This enabled us to compare the different answers and analyze them. When we compiled the interviews we noticed that many of the teachers had the same opinion when it came to storytelling and how it can be used in school. In this degree project we found it relevant to analyze one part before going on to the next, therefore our analysis is integrated in our results section. We have done four qualitative interviews with four different teachers of the subject storytelling. The interviews concern their experiences with the subject and how they use it in their classrooms. We have found that teachers have a positive attitude towards storytelling since they experience that their students benefit from this in their language development and overall motivation in school. In my degree project I also have a section with English as a ESL perspective, how storytelling is used and how it can be used to develop students language in an ESL perspective. I chose to do the same as in the other parts, I present the result and then the analyze is integrated in the result part.
