I read an article (Scopul este elevul, nu materia! – WebCultura) talking about memorizing things and using critics’ ways of seeing the literature.
I especially liked the conclusion: „If this Romanian education aims to take children away from literature, then to continue, because it succeeds wonderfully.”
It’s funny to see that the very means of looking at the literature (via critical analysis) is lacking to the process of learning literature itself.
The way in which the pupils are taught literature is not that fine, in my opinion, and the article gives good reasons for this.
To aim to teach critical analysis, and, at the same time, not apply critical thinking on your own system – now that’s a paradox!
