Literary Theory in Swedish Upper Secondary School: Classroom Examples
Lund University.
2011 (English)In: Proceedings from the 4th International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation, Madrid: The International Academy of Technology, Education and Development , 2011, 5533-5542 p.Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this paper I challenge the opinion that literary theory should not be taught at upper secondary level. According to French literary theorist Tzvetan Todorov, the teacher at this level should aim at teaching literary works, not theory. Theory should only be used as an invisible instrument. My hypothesis is that literary theory can be used successfully at upper secondary level. A certain insight in theory can help the pupils become better readers. A possible way to do this is by using an inductive approach, that is starting with examples from literary works and get to the theory instead of the other way.

Abstract [sv]

I detta konferensbidrag ifrågasätter jag åsikten att litteraturteori inte bör läras ut på gymnasienivå. Enligt den franske litteraturteoretikern Tzvetan Todorov bör läraren på denna nivå endast lära ut litterära verk, inte teori. Teorin borde endast användas som ett osynligt verktyg.Min hypotes är att litteraturteorin kan användas framgångsrikt på gymnasiet. Viss insikt i teorin kan bidra till att eleverna blir bättre läsare. Ett möjligt sätt att göra detta är via ett induktivt arbetssätt, det vill säga genom att starta med exempel från skönlitterära verk och komma fram till teorin, istället för tvärtom.
