This free-standing course is aimed at students who intend to teach English for young learners, with a special focus on primary school years 4-6. The course is part of the initiative “Fler vägar in”. It is relevant if you are working as a teacher but need to study more courses to become eligible to teach English at primary school years 4-6.

The course looks at literature for young learners from the perspective of literature studies. It deals with text analysis through the use of basic literary concepts in English. Literature for young learners is also elucidated in terms of its aesthetic, historical and social contexts. In addition, children’s response to literary text in English is also treated in relation to other media forms.
