An introduction to the artistic culture must be the primary concern of the modern school. The trouble is that the distance between culture and modern man all the increases. Strange: We do not have a clear understanding of what culture and why it is needed, there is no concept of culture. The question of making such a concept – it's a question of our national identity, integrity, existence, finally. Why use literature in school? Why it should be teach? That it gives man? What is its purpose? Property humanitarian approach to the subject matter – a holistic view. Full life of Russian classics in school – the condition of our existence.
Reading by nature – creation, creation of the world of letters and his own imagination. One reason for the cooling of the reader may be called the death of literature 90 years, and impersonal and the secondary literature of recent years – is evident. Before the modern school today is a difficult task – to give children an education that is help them to form themselves, form their own image. The path, going on which, the image formed from time immemorial – the occurrence of the child in the culture (general human and culture of his people), where there are patterns and rules knowledge, behavior and evaluations, philosophical, aesthetic, social. How to enter students into the world of culture, to help him get used to it, to make their cultural values? How does it do under the circumstances at the mighty and awesome competitors: troubled television waves, pouring our children are quite different values, and others.
Our subject, the literature – an art form, part of the culture. Literature representing the great moral and aesthetic values, the path of development which the child is the foundation of their spiritual path and personal formation and development. For this to happen the children to be literate, interested readers. This problem (to make the children qualified readers) is the purpose and content of literary education.
