The boy in the striped pyjamas as a book to read aloud : How to use a novel for discussions about democratic values in school (English)
Abstract [en]

This study examines the significance of reading aloud for work with values in school through an analysis of Pojken i randig pyjamas (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas). The analysis considers the themes and narrative technique of the texts. In this study, reading aloud is viewed as an opportunity for the teacher to read aloud to pupils from a work of literature. The book Pojken i randig pyjamas was selected for study because it is a book that is often chosen for reading aloud and it can lead to many discussions in the classroom. The results show that this book is suitable in many ways for reading aloud in the classroom. The study also finds that this book functions well as a basis for work with values. Although the book deals with the Holocaust, a topic that can be difficult for teachers and pupils to deal with in a good way, the study shows that this book, when the reading is followed by a discussion, can contribute to a broader understanding of both the Holocaust and the outlook on humanity.
