Teaching Literature Through Coaching

This article reviews stereotypes and beliefs which prevent the teenagers from feeling safe to have their own opinion and express themselves when reading fiction in the course of literature. Coaching allows a completely different approach: not only just ask questions (teachers of literature always do it) but perceive students as ready made readers who have their own reading preferences, circumstances for reading, ways of analysis and interpretation of fiction as well as students' own manner of reading out loud or retell by heart. When the focus of attention is changed in this way, we notice new resources in usual kinds of activities, ways of analysis and fiction itself, which is included in the curriculum.

Key words: values, identity, rapport, logical levels pyramid, non judgmental approach, positive intention.

We were brought up in the culture where it is considered right to learn well first and only then act in accordance with what you’ve learned. Our mindset is that we "answer for our mistakes" that happens to be a source of stress for many students as well. So, how can we perceive not-knowing as a resource for creativity? The author shares three questions to help teachers gradually move from highly expert and directive approach to open communication space of coaching.
