    In the latest curriculum for Slovene language published in 2011, we could conclude that homeland and intercultural literary socialisation are much more connected than they used to be. This can be explained as a consequence of the constant transformation of human society and of the system. In the general goals, which are written in the curriculum, we can see the connection with literary lessons and the development of intercultural competence, encouraging critical thinking. According to those goals, children should be able to spread their horizons and educate themselves with the help of youth literature, that carries intercultural education messages. The latter is already written in the curriculum, however, it seems to me, that teachers often use fiction texts with the view of bringing children closer to other cultures or involving children who have not fully fit into the new environment. The purpose of intercultural education in the teaching of literature is to provide students with positive experiences by recognising differences between people and offering them the opportunity to accept those differences and see the benefits of them as well. Through fairy tales, that we read to children, we give them important messages and at the same time exceptional opportunities for them to shape their own aspects in different situations. After reading the text, different activities have to be planned carefully. Those activities help children learn patience and also allow them to relate and evaluate relationships between characters in fairy tales. The aim of the research is to determine the views of class teachers about the importance and frequency of the inclusion of intercultural education in the teaching of literature in the first three years. The research deals with the following questions: how and when teachers include the literature, that encourages intercultural thinking in the classroom, to what extent they believe, that this includes the school's school notes and what kind of activities most commonly occur. With this study I would like to show what the differences in attitudes in the inclusion of intercultural education in teaching literature among teachers of the first educational period with shorter working hours are and what are the differences with those, who have more work experience.
