Abstract

Bearing in mind that the primary education is the basement for gaining and developing the students' language and orthographic literacy teaching students about the relevance of the punctuation and orthographic marks as two separate categories of marks that differ according to their use in the written text and their classification (some punctuation marks can also be used as orthographic marks) is very important. The Macedonian language coursebooks for nine-year primary education are written according to the Teaching curriculum, therefore it is extremely significant for the Teaching curriculum for the nine-year primary education to be written in a way that clearely reflects the importance of these two categories of marks and indicates the difference between them and this should be done in accordance to the Orthography of the Macedonian language in order to improve the quality of the course books and to preserve the orthographic norm. Consequently, the objective of the paper is to examine and describe whether the difference between the punctuation and orthographic marks is indicated and whether the classification of these marks is done properly (according to the Orthography), both, in the Macedonian language teaching curriculum and the Macedonian language course textbooks for the nine-year primary education. Therefore, this research has a qualitative paradigm (analysis of content) and descriptive design. The methods used to collect and process the data and scientific conclusion are analysis and synthesis. The analysis demonstrates the necessity of an urgent revision of the Teaching curriculum because the existing content regarding these two categories of marks and their classification is not precise and correct. This affects the quality of the coursebooks which need to be revised too, because they also contain inconsistencies and incorrect information that especially refer to the classification of these marks.
