Abstract

 The study of A. Xhuvan's activity, with particular emphasis on the drafting and publication of primary and secondary school texts (then also high school), is still important today, due to the fact that science constantly finds new information about his works. . The studies so far have partially given scientific opinion on this great personality of education.

  We will analyze the data from the year 1919, when he published the first text "Language book or grammar: First part", he (either as author or co-author) published or reprinted nearly 40 textbooks of Albanian grammar and syntax, elementary , reading books, anthologies, texts of ancient Greek and Arberian literature, of stylistics and general literature, of pedagogy and psychology, etc., among which are the texts: "Didactics and Education" (1926), "Beginnings of Stylistics" of general literature" (co-author with Kostaq Cipo, 1930); "Additional psychology in the work of education" (1933), which Norbert Jokli called a "monumental" work, then "Didactics" (1937), "Education" in manuscript, etc.

We will analyze his studies and texts, the way in which the two rare types of a man naturally intertwine, that is, A. Xhuvani the scholar and A. Xhuvani the linguist. His texts are used, not only in Albania, but also in the Albanian territories abroad, even in the diaspora. They also served as a methodological model for other authors of Albanian textbooks. Even in Kosovo, the first grammars of the Albanian language were drawn up according to the model of Alexander Xhuvan's texts. In addition to textbooks, he was also an editor, reviewer, translator, etc. With the textbooks of A. Xhuvan, a new stage in Albanian textology began. Meanwhile, he intensified cooperation with many magazines and newspapers of the time, such as: "Pedagogical Magazine", "Normalisti", "Kumtari assimuer", "New School", "Teacher", "National School", etc., where he dealt with various issues pedagogical, educational, teaching etc...

Xhuvan's pedagogical thought is a model thought that should be guided today and that his works deserve more in-depth studies.
