Function, content and form in interaction. Students? text-making in early school years. The main purpose of this project is to further develop ways to study and understand students? text-making in early school years. A first aim is to develop a model to be used for the analysis of content-based aspects of students? writing and multimodal text-making (project year 1-3). Analytical tools such as those used in genre analysis, narrative structures analysis, stylistics, multimodal analysis and curriculum studies (content in school subjects) will be used. Content-based aspects of concern are furthermore organized into central dimensions in order to identify students? ways of expanding their repertoire of text-making in a way that has not previously been done. The analysis of content-based dimensions is also combined with an analysis of students? ways of expanding the dimensions function and form. In this way, a more thorough description of students? ways of expanding their repertoire of text-making and writing is created. A metalanguage is at the same time developed to embrace the interaction between function, content and form in text-making. A second aim of the project is to examine how such a metalanguage can be used by teachers in order to extend their way of looking at and assessing students? text-making and ways of expanding their repertoire of text-making (project year 4).
