Good Literary Practices in the Secondary Education Classroom: Reading the Classics from a Bimodal Perspective
María-José Molina-García, María Rosa Márquez Clares and Pilar Núñez-Delgado
This research, which is framed in an R+D project on Literary Education, aims to explore and validate strategies to bring classic readings closer to Secondary Education students. Specifically, this study focuses on the design of the didactic program. The methodology adopts a bimodal approach based on collaborative group learning and problem solving. The experimental subjects are students between 15 and 16 years old, and the materials are based on the use of ICT tools and the design of a blog that seeks to introduce classic books in a more motivating way and to enhance the axiological dimension of Literature (Arriasecq y Santos, 2017). The leading figure of Emilia Pardo Bazán and two of her least popular works (Gol, 2016), which can be found in La Biblioteca de la Mujer (Women´s Library) that she founded in 1892, have been chosen as philological-culinary projects (Teophano, 2016). These works reflect the author’s concern for social enculturation and specially her modern ideas on female identity (Moreno, 2016), a topic which can engage students to whom the proposal is addressed. The project objective is motivating students towards reading by using non-traditional texts, such as recipe books (Simón Palmer y Sauret Guerrero, 2010), and introducing socially attractive works to improve their critical thinking and contribute to their Values Education. Thus, we can achieve a productive Literary Education that builds thematic bridges connecting with previous times and collectives.
