Based on the reflection of their own reading experiences and socialization, the students are invited to deal with current questions of teaching reading skills and literature. Studies on reading habits of children and youngsters serve as the basis for introducing and developing models and methods for a motivating training of reading skills and literature.

Introduction: participants reflect on their own reading experiences, socialization and habits: what aspects have influenced their attitude towards reading in general? What role do the German lessons and the teacher in school play?

How to teach reading skills: critical discussion and analysis of the results of the PISA studies; what are the requirements of the curriculum and the educational standards as regards reading skills? Reading and the new media; possibilities and strategies to improve reading competences; skimming and scanning, deep reading, procedures of loud-reading and quantitative reading;  elaborating reading strategies, methods to take in information from non-fictional texts etc.

Didactic aspects of teaching literature: what are the requirements of the curriculum and the educational standards? Do we need a prescribed reading list for schools?  What kind of literature is suitable? Getting to know and assessing literature for kids and young people; methods for teaching literature: reading journals, literary discussions and play reading, scope of learning and learning circles, preparing a reading night etc.

Input, presentations, pair and group work, discussions, a teaching sequence.

Commitment and co-operation in class; together with colleagues preparing and presenting a sequence of teaching; commenting and preparing an article in a journal; reading and commenting on three examples of literature for kids and young people; conducting and documenting an interview with a former teacher and with two pupils; commenting on and assessing websites that are relevant for teaching reading skills and literature.
