Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to investigate preconditions for working with basic morals and valueswith the help of fiction literature in Swedish school. The subject of Swedish language and literature studies is in focus. The project reflects on the choice of literature made by three largest community college libraries in Gavleborg. The analysis is narrowed to investigate the variety of the authors with different ethnic backgrounds, when it concerns fiction literature available in the choisen college libraries. Several teachers and their classes have also taken part in an additional survey in order to contribute to a deeper discussion and a wider personal perspective on the theoretical foundings. The results are discussed with the help of theories on development of cultural identity at school, history of educational development in Sweden and the existing directives from Swedish Educational Department Skolverket.
