The Learning Chain of Excerpts Didactic ModelZoran Božič
, 2017, original scientific article
Abstract: The paper presents a case study of the interpretation of a medium-length narrative text in pre-college settings based on a learning chain of excerpts model supplemented with questions for close reading. This didactic approach had already become widespread in Slovenia prior to WW II, and achieved a more systematic realization with the publication of two workbooks for home reading: Zlati poljub (The golden kiss; Božič 1998) and Poljub zlata (The kiss of gold; Božič 1998) in 1998. After almost two decades of its application in schools, it is time for a more detailed assessment of the approach and its usefulness, which has been carried out by also comparing two learning chains that were created for the well-known novella “Tantadruj” by Kosmač. The paper concludes with a learning chain that connects Tantadruj’s search for happiness with the narrator’s search for creative inspiration.
