SOME PROBLEMS OF TEACHING RUSSIAN--PUSHKIN OR EVTUSHENKO.
KRZYZANOWSKI, JERZY R.
ALTHOUGH CAUTIOUS TRADITIONALISM, TEXT AVAILABILITY, LITERARY VALUE, AND PREFERRED LANGUAGE USAGE APPEAR TO FAVOR USING READING TEXTS BASED ON 19TH-CENTURY CLASSICS IN RUSSIAN LANGUAGE COURSES, AMERICAN STUDENTS, WHO IN THEIR CAREERS WILL NEED TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE CURRENT GENERATION IN RUSSIA, WILL FIND AN EXPOSURE TO MODERN READINGS MORE REWARDING. THE RELEASE OF SOME NEW TEXTS ON CONTEMPORARY LIFE HAS HELPED OVERCOME THE OBJECTIONS TO THE PREVIOUS COMMUNIST-SATURATED MODERN READING MATERIALS THAT WERE AVAILABLE. HOWEVER, THE MORE COMPLEX PROBLEM OF UNDERSTANDING THE DIVERSITY OF CONTEMPORARY SOVIET SOCIETY CAN BE HANDLED ONLY BY A WELL-PREPARED TEACHER WHO IS CAPABLE OF SELECTING, FOR CLASSROOM USE, APPROPRIATE VEHICLES OF THE CHANGING, OFTEN COLLOQUIALLY UNGRAMMATICAL LITERARY LANGUAGE, AND WHO CAN GUIDE HIS STUDENTS THROUGH THE MAZE OF TECHNICAL TERMS, NAMES, ABBREVIATIONS, AND INDEPENDENT RESEARCH PROBLEMS INHERENT IN INVOLVEMENT WITH MODERN RUSSIAN. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY FOREIGN LANGUAGE CONFERENCE (20TH, LEXINGTON, APRIL 28-29, 1967). (AB)
