Methodology of Literature

Class at Faculty of Education |


The aim of the course is to introduce the problems of teaching literature within a foreign language subject. The students will be shown the importance of literature for creating social-cultural and intercultural skills.

Teaching literature will be put into context with the system of literature (with both literary-historic and literary-theoretic aspects) and literary communication (taking place at/outside school). As far as the contents is concerned, the course may be divided into following topics: Literature lessons as a part of teaching foreign languages.

Literary text as a subunit of the system of literature and as an independent unit of the social-cultural system. Activity-directed text analysis.

Theory of literature and literary history in teaching foreign languages.
