Teaching science to newly arrived pupils within a Swedish context

A boy. Photo credit Fatma AslanEach newly arrived pupil arrives in a new country with their own native language, education history, and life experiences. They have varied linguistic, educational, and cultural backgrounds. Consequently, they need to cope with the challenges of developing knowledge in a new language and adapting to a new environment within a new school system. As a way for the Swedish school system to provide adequate assistance for newly arrived pupils, study guidance was launched as a pedagogical idea in Sweden 1966. The focus of my research is on the science study guidance sessions with newly arrived pupils in Swedish schools.
