The Ten Rights of Literature: A Didactic Approach for Fourth Grade in Portuguese Primary Schools

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this article, I describe the principles and implications of literary education at the primary school level in Portugal. If teachers are committed to fostering affective and aesthetic relationships with literary texts and not merely using them as a means to develop competencies related to reading and grammar skills, their respect for the rights of literature is crucial. Here, I provide concrete, practical examples of how this goal might be achieved in the classroom, based on Portuguese literary texts that are commonly read in the fourth grade / year 4 classroom (4.º ano de escolaridade).
