THE LITERARY TEXT AS PRETEXT FOR STUDYING ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND CIVILIZATION AT SECONDARY LEVEL, autor Gina Liliana Giurgea

The study is structured into two main parts (chapters), to which an introduction, conclusions and appendices were added. It presents the theoretical frame, applies it to the actual practice of teaching at secondary school level and focuses on the experimental activities carried out and the ensuing materials.
The first section of the paper focuses on the role of literature in studying a language, with emphasis on the connection between literature and art and on the techniques involved in approaching it. It begins with a brief overview of the process of perceiving a literary text, highlights some methods and procedures for studying language and literature, developing the capacity of receiving oral messages and themes that lead to the study of written literature in English and Romanian classes. Then, the literary text is seen as a pretext for pursuing the study of English, for acquiring communication skills, decoding a text, learning how to read, understanding the importance of the vocabulary involved and foregrounding the teacher’ s role.
Chapter two presents the development of cultural representations, the positive attitudes and interests in language study and in the Anglo-Saxon cultural space in English classes dedicated to: novel or traditional grammar patterns, the basic vocabulary used in these texts, the specific aspects of culture and civilization. It ‘also deals with issues of curriculum structure, identifying objectives and performance standards by comparing the two subjects (English and Romanian), the material resources used in teaching, the thematic organization of content and the role of literature textbook, thus targeting the advantages and disadvantages of the theme under the lens.
Of course, the paper does not boast of an exhaustive treatment of the issue under scrutiny, its ultimate objectives being those of raising awareness as to the role of literature in young people’s lives and of opening up the discussion on the way in which literature is dealt with in the educational system.
