Yuliya Borisovna Balashova


The article deals with theoretical and poetological aspects of teaching the discipline "History of Russian Literature" to students enrolled in a bachelor degree in "Journalism". The author draws on his own experience of teaching the discipline at the Faculty of Journalism at St. Petersburg State University (Russia). In the area of methods of teaching the general subjects, an approach to teaching literature is sufficiently developed for students studying philology at the university. Meanwhile, today communication science serves as one of the fastest growing areas of scientific knowledge and the sphere of popular practice. However the question of the methods of teaching the history of literature to numerous students studying the communicative science is still not seriously raised. From theoretical point of view, it is not equally important to introduce vast and diverse picture of the literary process in different periods to journalism students, as to philology students. The main task is to teach students how to read and understand literary texts in their correlation with the extra-literary line. In this case the specific character of the literary context and creative manner is more fully revealed through demonstration of the impact of different factors: political, social, common cultural - on the literary process as a whole and individual poetics in particular. In addition, in the teaching process it is necessary to solve such problems as teaching students to use the results of literary analysis of a literary text for learning algorithms of text creation and creating individual media products. The purpose of this article is to actualize literary material in the way of analysis of some examples of general and individual poetics of the literature of 1920 - 1930-s.
