German Poetry of the 20th century – A proposal for a didactic unit.

  • Michaela Reinhardt Università degli Studi del Piemonte Orientale

Abstract

German Poetry of the 20th century – A proposal for a didactic unit. The didactics of foreign literature represents a discipline whose theoretical components are still not very well developed. The planning aspects in this field (in this case German literature) interest transversely numerous areas, from linguistics, literary aesthetics and cultural history to pedagogy and the psychology of development.

The objective of the present essay is to illustrate several fundamental considerations concerning the planning of a didactic unit, based on the theoretical premises of the above-mentioned disciplines. For this purpose, there is a description of the various phases of planning a didactic unit for German poetry, elaborated together with the students during the lessons. The program, based principally on the reception theory as well as the didactic approach of competences, inevitably leads to a critical revision of the traditional canons proposed by the textbooks presently in use in the secondary schools.
