Schöningh produces a comprehensive range of textbooks for all federal states, school types and ages—including learning aids, teachers’ literature and digital products. A key area of focus is the humanities in Gymnasien and Realschulen.

This is a longstanding tradition: the founder of the publishing house, Ferdinand Schöningh, already planned in the mid-19th century for his range to consist of durable textbooks intended for the more advanced forms of school education and for teacher training. Ever since, the name Schöningh has been synonymous with advanced learning materials. Accordingly, Schöningh offers a very successful range of learning materials for the secondary-school subjects Politics and History, as well as coordinated and practically-orientated learning materials for German, such as, for example, the competency-based exercise and reading book “P.A.U.L.” and the series “EinFach Deutsch”, complete with text extracts, model lessons and support with interpretation.
