ABSTRACT

In the literature textbook Korean traditional fictions are usually in the area of ‘The range and history of Korean literature’. There are not so many Korean traditional fictions in textbooks, but also the kind of thing is biased. As the result, Korean traditional fictions tend to be recognized only as products of the past. Moreover, students do not have much interest in traditional fictions in the textbooks. However, it is not the only thing students are bored with. Students have a negative reaction to the literature in their textbooks, too. This crisis of literary stems fundamentally from the narrow sense of literature based on modern Western literature. Therefore, to solve the problem, it is necessary to expand the scope of literature to culture, and in the same context traditional fictions should be re-understood as a popular novel of the time, not a classic. In order to educate traditional fictions in the cultural context, we can consider ways to organize textbooks by subject. Students will be able to better understand the genre of each text and the media characteristics that make up the text, as they looking at various kinds of texts on important social topics of today together. Furthermore, through that way integrated education for a new era will be possible.
