My project – written literacy

Bakventskolen [backwards-school](written by minority language pupil)

Det var en gang en jente som het Avre. Alle kom naken til skolen. Når vi spiser så spiser vi smågodt. Alle barna kommer om natta. Vi kler normmale klær ute og inne kler vi dress. Når vi låner bøker fra biblioteket så tegner vi boka isteden og lese. Når vi kommer hjem så er det morgen.

[Once upon a time there was a girl called Avre. Everybody came naked to school. When we eat we eat sweets. All the children come in the night time. We dress up in normmal clothes outside and inside we dress in [out-door clothing]. When we borrow books from the library then we draw book instead and read. When we come home then it is morning.]

interesting issues of investigation
Interesting issues of investigation?
  • look for a correspondence between each pupil’s eagerness to read literature (as reported by the teacher), with his or her rapidity in the development of writing.
  • see whether there is a difference in the speed of the development in their narrative texts vs. their non-fiction/argumentative texts.
  • look for a difference in the impact of the extended reading experiences of these pupils that may be revealed between the native speakers of Norwegian and the minority language pupils
questions
Questions
  • How can my study of written literacy development be designed such that it yields interesting and valid data and analyses?
  • What are important conditions for validity in this specific context?
