Mulingula (multilinguale Leseaktivitäten)

Mulingula (multilingual reading activities) Research in the field of reading skills proves the importance of positive reading role models in the family for a successful reading socialization. Children with a migration background often have only little pre-school experience with written culture and show a weaker performance of reading skills in particular. This is what the Mulingula project uses as a starting point: reading interests, reading motivation and literary knowledge are to be built up by the access to books in the respective mother tongue. The children are read to in linguistically homogeneous groups (Russian, Romanes, Polish or Arabic) once a week. These lessons are integrated in the regular timetable. Talking about what was read, scenic plays and borrowing the books are accompanying activities. The aim of the project is the development of a vivid reading culture correspondent to the linguistic diversity at the school.
