Identity discourse in Polish language textbooks in relation to student needs in the period of early adolescence

Marta Mytko

Abstract

The number of notions comprising the Polish language is growing and didacticians are placing emphasis on their pedagogical effects. In this context identity discourse is gaining significance. Its presence in Polish language classes is justified by literary science theories and educational documents. Discussing the issue of identity is important in relation to the developmental needs of students in the period of adolescence. Due to the role which the textbook fulfills in the didactic process, it is assumed that the issues in question will be taken into consideration by authors. Results of own analyses conform the presence of identity discourse in junior high school textbooks. The studied books contain tasks which facilitate the development of identity from the traditional perspective (in line with the concept by Erik Erikson), and a narrative one (in line with the theory by Dan McAdams). Studies also encompassed texts and exercises related to body identity, facilitating the development of the student's own value system (in particular a patriotic attitude) and in reference to tradition (particularly the Bible), as well as culture and art (on the example of theater). The analysis allowed to perceive the presence of different functional dimensions of identity discourse in textbooks, while simultaneously emphasizing the differences between the studied series of books.
