  • Anna Mathisen

Summary, in English

The aim of the study is to investigate how teachers of Swedish work with teaching writing in general and specifically to support girls with ADHD. The data collection took place during the autumn of 2020 through semi structured qualitative interviews conducted over Zoom. Three teachers from year 7 9 in the comprehensive school and one teacher from the Upper Secondary
school part took in the interviews. The results were compared to each other and are presented in thematic order. The result shows that the interviewed teachers work according to the circular model It is also clear that the teachers have experience d that the symptom s of girls with ADHD can vary greatly from individual to individual. But the majority of the interviewed teachers
have helped the girls to clarify the work through sub targets checklists and structured teaching. The results from the interviews are analyzed and discussed in relations to theories of teacher practice and writing development. In conclusion, the teachers need to hav e a flexible, understanding and knowledge based approach to the girls when teaching writing. The girls
could especially benefit from a calm, more secluded work environment, and to work in smaller groups. Finally, the girls could benefit from teacher led sessions for the development of strategies for writing to deal with the fluctuating energy levels.
