Course content

Norwegian 2 is a continuation of Norwegian 1 and covers the teaching of Norwegian for the grades 5-10 with emphasis on the grades 7-10. The course provides historical background and more extensive knowledge about key linguistic and literary topics, a deeper insight into teaching Norwegian, and a more effective academic basis for working on assessment that promotes learning and adapted Norwegian education for all pupils. Through work on language and texts the students are invited to further develop their own language skills and their own textual competence and dissemination skills. Instruction in scientific methodology is integrated in course work related to individual written assignments. The course is split into two main areas of interest connected to the broad categories of (1) literacy, language and language (mother tongue) didactics and (2) literacy, literature and teaching literature (literature didactics).

Main area 1

Main area 1 focuses on Norwegian language (system and use), Norwegian as a second language, Norwegian (spoken) language variation, neighbouring languages and Sami languages. A central area of interest involves the active use of knowledge of language and text in counselling pupils’ development of their skills in reading, writing, and speaking.

Main area 2

Main area 2 focuses on theoretical, historical, and literary-didactic knowledge about and approaches to literature (fiction and non-fiction) in different genres and media. Texts from film, theatre, and other media are studied within the framework of Norwegian teaching and learning, as they relate to Norwegian as a school subject.
