Fiction at the Intermediate Level - More Than Just Reading

Abstract [en]

Purpose: Investigate how fiction can be used in the intermediate school in order to give the students a chance to reach goals in the curriculum and the syllabus.

Question formulation: How is fiction used today in order to reach goals in the syllabus and curriculum? How can fiction be used to reach the goals?

Method: I have read three fictional books which are used in the intermediate school at two schools today and analysed how these books can be useful to be able to reach goals considering democracy, equality and fair treatment. I did a small interview with two teachers in Swedish who uses these books in their teaching to see how the books are used at the moment and what goals the teachers have set up for their students to reach.

Conclusion: Seen to the analysis that I have made I find fiction to be very useful in school as a tool which can be used to reach goals in the syllabus and curriculum which is the foundation of our school today by using discussions as a method of making the students understand what they have read. Teachers who use fiction think that it is a good way of making the students aware of the different worldviews that exists.
