What it needs to serve as a “key“:

  • the story must be easily understood

  • the plot must be simple

  • the conflict should rouse the students‘ interest

  • the setting should be here and now

  • coexistence of individual and general conflicts is important

  • incongruence with students‘ life experience generates interest

  • action and dialogue are to outweigh description and reflection

  • a “cinematographic“ structure helps

  • identification should be possible

  • transgenerational or intersexual conflicts generalize the plot

  • students should be able to read the text on their own
