Educational Text and Activity in the Learning Process


The concepts “text” and “text activity” are gradually expanding the area of their application. After the successful practice of their usage in hermeneutics and linguistics, they are decisively invading pedagogical science. Here, the text is understood both as speech fixed on the paper and any other forms of messages addressed to Others or the writer himself as the Other. The result of interacting with texts is not only broadcasting, but also mastering and increasing the social, professional and personal experience of an individual, social groups and the society as a whole. The authors regard the learning process as a specific kind of text activity of its subjects (i.e. both the teacher and the student). At the same time, the authors point out that in the overall structure of the text activity the central place is taken by the processes of counter text generation. The authors state that several types of texts are used in the learning process, among which not only texts, originally created for educational purposes, but also texts somehow adapted for this. The texts produced by the students are particularly important for the educational process. The paper proposes a definition of the concept “educational text”, as well as the characteristics of taxa of educational texts.
