and instructional texts.
Teaching should stimulate pupils’ interest in reading and writing. Through teaching pupils should be given the opportunity to develop their knowledge of how they can express their own views and thinking in different types of texts and through various media. Teaching should also aim at enabling pupils to develop skills for creating and working on texts, individually and together with others.
In the meeting with different types of texts, students are given the opportunity to develop their own language, their own identity and their understanding of the outside world. Teaching should help strengthen students' awareness of and confidence in their own language and communication skills.
