Abstract [en]

Teachers' perception of equality should reflect the fiction they choose and what effect this will have in school teaching. The general aim is to investigate how reading literary text can be used as a means to influence and change students' perception of equality. Our school essay intends to answer the following questions,

- What is the students' perception of equality?

- How does the meeting with the fiction influence the students' perceptions of equality on the basis of culture and gender?

The method we have used in this study is a qualitative research method with group discussion as a tool. Through the impact study, we examine how students discuss and reflect about their thoughts from reading fiction. We have listened to and transcribed for the essay important details of the talks. Our theoretical connection consists of the Russian language philosopher and literary theorist, Mikhail Bakhtin, which assumes that human existence is fundamentally dialogic and argue that the individual exists and develops in communicating with other people.

Our results from group discussions show that fictions can usefully be used as an educational adjunct in school teaching to promote students' perception and understanding within a given topic. Fiction texts animate life situations and problems that make it possible for students to familiarize themselves in.

Our results of the impact study also indicates that students' perceptions can be changed through discussion around the reading. The individual reading arouses students' thoughts and understanding of both themselves as to the world that in the latter interaction with other team members demonstrate advanced abilities to highlight new knowledge. We also found examples where either explicitly confirm or deny the talks so as to develop students understanding and ability to reflect on the experience of reading in relation to reality. The results also show that talks about the reading helps students to develop an understanding of both the text's meaning as its content and purpose.

It therefore leads us into the knowledge of the text value and importance of the choice of lit erature. To allow such a practical purpose as possible with the reading of literature requires both experience and planning of the election in order to achieve the greatest possible knowledge for the students'.
