“Closer to Classics!”

11.05.2016

Within the frames of the Public Expertise, which was organized by the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, the teachers of the Russian Literature Department of the Institute of Humanitarian Sciences of the Moscow City Pedagogical University discussed at the “round table” “The Exemplary Basic Educational Program in Literature for the 10–11-Forms” with the criticisms from the enthusiastic readers on the website being taken into consideration.

According to the members of the discussion, the methodology, formulation of the themes, the list of works to be studied as proposed by the authors of the document are not convincing.

In particular, if the proposed project is implemented, then none of the works by M.A.Sholokhov would actually be ever read by a school student at all. The name of M.A.Sholokhov is placed among those of other writers of the 1920–1950s in block C, which is supposed for a free choice of names and works within 1–3 positions by a teacher.

The novel “And Quiet Flows the Don” is supposed for scoping study. And the story “The Fate of a Man” causing a constant positive response in young people is not mentioned at all and can be left out of the school curriculum.

The project of “The Exemplary Basic Educational Program in Literature for the 10–11-Forms” is being under public discussion and rework. However, the members of the “round table” came to conclusion, that the present document is based on erroneous methodological grounds and, consequently, its completion to an acceptable level is not possible.
