Turkish Language and Literature Education in Turkey (Brief History-Problems-Recommendations)
Beyreli, Latif
Education, v129 n3 p534-546 Spr 2009
Language and literature education in Turkey has searched its way through a variety of trials and errors since 1923, when the education heritage inherited from the Ottoman Empire was rebuilt upon a contemporary and laic foundation, and established upon modern foundations in 2005 with the assistance of a variety of curricula used after a long preparation process. However, the 2005 curriculum has many differences from the previous ones. First of all, the new curriculum is student-centered in terms of the foundations it is built upon, and is based on a constructivist model. Frequent changes in curricula to date have led to problems in language and literature teaching. It can be said that this problem partially persists even today. This paper deals with the brief history of the language and literature education from 1923 to date, the problems encountered in application and solutions to these problems. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
