The opportunities of fiction : Examples of how fiction can be used when processing intractable subjects (English)
Abstract [en]

The study examines potential opportunities from reading fictional stories. It is focusing on different ways to use fiction as a tool when dealing with difficulties in life, such as death, bullying, injustice, racism, etc. Furthermore, the study investigates in what way the teachers consider how to process what has been read. The examination is based on qualitative interviews of six teachers, including three librarians, all with different workplaces. From the result it can be concluded that fiction is a versatile tool in many areas. Reading can be used as an aesthetic and relaxing activity, but has often a pedagogical design including an educational motive. A majority of the teachers use fiction to form pupils to good and respectful human beings. In addition, fiction is used to develop a positive approach to people’s differences and to multiculturalism. The results show that the single most important factor in reading is processing the read, and a majority of the teachers state that understanding is created when pupils discuss with others.
