English abstract
The aim of this degree project is to examine how three 6th grade teachers implement reading instruction in their lessons. Furthermore, the aim is to investigate how they describe their work with reading comprehension. Our investigation is based on qualitative semi- structured interviews and observations. The results indicate that teachers do not explicitly teach reading strategies. Furthermore, teachers showed an awareness of students’ interests and took them into consideration during the lessons. For instance, the teachers argued that in order to motivate students to read, they must be provided with interesting texts. The findings also showed that all teachers emphasizes vocabulary and they argue that the bigger the vocabulary is, the more effortless reading becomes.
