English teachers’ perceptions of teaching reading and reading strategies to students with dyslexia
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This is a study about English teachers’ perception on teaching students with dyslexia reading and reading strategies and their knowledge gained on the subject matter. The aim was to identify, describe and analyse the teacher‟s perceptions of teaching Swedish students with dyslexia in four Swedish mainstream secondary schools. The data for this study was collected by interviews from four English teachers in four different mainstream secondary schools. The results show that English teachers get too little in-service training from their employer about dyslexia and reading difficulties. In addition the English teachers need to become more familiar with what reading strategies are and what new learning assisting materials students with dyslexia can make use of, such as new applications and the new HELP-program.
