Summary/Abstract: Taking into consideration the idea that contemporary methods of teaching literature should be opened for methodology of contemporary literary theory, the author explores the possibilities of including of gynocriticism in the teaching practice. The analysis of the writings of Jefimija, Isidora Sekulić and Desanka Maksimović, which are included in the existing high school curricula, shows that gynocriticism, in combination with other literary theories and approaches, can be the starting point for teaching methods as well as enriching the problem-creative and integration-correlation systems of teaching and model methods procedures. In addition, based on feminist reading-response theory, the author emphasizes the need for including more female writers in high school curricula in order to achieve the goals immanent to teaching literature.
