Abstract [en]

The essay concerns the role of fiction in school. The research questions is; what is “readable”, what does the authors think of teacher's task to develop students' literacy skills through fiction and how do the authors think of the teachers' task of using fiction in school. The questions give a basis that describes the role of fiction in school today based on the authors' perspective. We have chosen to use the open surveys as a method. In addition to the questionnaire, we have chosen to interview two authors when requested. The results show that from the authors perspective literature plays an important role in the school. The authors want the teachers to take a bigger responsibility for literature in the school in order to offer the students fiction that is interesting and readable. They also think that by using literature frequently, and by engaging the authors in lesson about fiction the students reading will improve.
