Renate Welsh und ihre Texte im Unterricht
Since 1975, Renate Welsh is one of the best-known Austrian authors for children and young adults. Her literary work ranges from picture books, novels and fantasy for children, (auto-)biographical texts to historical novels also for adults. In this journal researchers focus on her work from different perspectives. Her influence on children’s literature in Austria will be described, also how her creative writing workshops can be inspiring for teaching in the context of competence-oriented German lessons. The “Responsive Literaturdidaktik” will be explained through the book “Das Vamperl”. Close looks at teaching lessons show how reading books from Renate Welsh enrich learning in schools.
