Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out how three teachers in Sweden work with literature and fiction in school. The main focus of this study is to examine for what reasons the teachers use literature and fiction as a pedagogic tool. Research shows that using fiction in school as an education tool can develop pupils writing and linguistic improvement. The teachers who were interviewed in this study seem to have a positive attitude to fiction.  They also believe that fiction is increasing the pupils´ vocabulary and that group discussions about reading are important because the pupils learn to reflect reading. The interwied teachers´-mention that fiction has a positive effect on pupils’ general language development. The method which was used in this essay is qualitative interviews. The participants have between 3 to 16 years of experience in their work field and the interviews were recorded and took place in their class room.
