Literature is less important than it is made out to be in school
Debate Rounds (4)
Therefore, the methods of writing or "literature" fortifies the meaning of itself by educating us not only "analysis" but creative writing which alters the process and methods of which your mind creates new information induced by a chosen topic. Literature is not something to be taken lightly, most definitely should schools introduce literacy from a young age onwards through your life. Analysis is merely a single aspect of literacy usually taught at a later age when your mind starts creating it's own theories regarding life's mysteries. I don't think you understand the definition of literacy which threw you off of this debate.
Please describe to me out of the new terms that you have leaned, which ones are impractical to modern society?
But what about all those classics that are required to be studied for English Literature qualifications? Is literature "behaving" the same now as it was in Shakespeare"s day? I think you decided to stretch the meaning of literature to all written works so you could have some substance in your argument.
I think one can compare English Literature to Greek Mythology. Greek Mythology, as far as I can see, hasn"t got as great a position in education as it used to have in previous decades. Is this not because it is less important now in a modern society than it used to be? If so, surely classic literature is the same.
Furthermore, the analysis aspect is almost the only aspect of GCSE English Literature (in the UK anyway).So is it not true to say that those in charge of education have thrown away the important part of studying literature and kept the less important part? Formulating theories about life"s issues surely belongs in the philosophy department of education.
I did not just come up with the meaning of literature, I have literally given you the definition of what literature is... If you think the definition of literature is "stretched" then feel free to phone up every dictionary company in the world and argue what the definition should be..."Greek mythology" is a short lesson held at a later age just to provide you with information regarding the past so that as evolution grows, the past is never forgotten and will fortify the future with all of our pasts issues. Subpar pieces of information is kept at a light level of education which lasts merely a short period of time being taught, the fundamentals of literacy is very important to everyday life which should most definitely be taught from a young age to many future years to come. Saying that you don't like literacy because a couple of lessons are boring to you doesn't mean anything. Schools wouldn't waste your time with stupidity so that you would suffer past unimportance.
This debate is basically over, there is no genius in he world who could claim that literacy is less important than we think. I have just explained to you why everything in literacy is being taught, I don't know what else you can argue against me?
However, I resent you saying that I am only arguing this because I am bored in lessons. Besides being false, this isn't exactly a good way of going about a debate. Patience is a virtue in debating and it is important to listen to what the other party has to say, however ridiculous it appears to be. People's opinions have to be respected. So I hope we can continue this debate and leave it having gained something from it.
