Description of session (in English):

With new US education standards calling for students to become better readers and communicatorssuch as the ELA Common Core Standards (CCSS, 2011) and the new revised World Languages, LOTE state standards (Florida, Indiana, etc.), and the "refreshed” National Language Standards (ACTFL, 2013)– literature has become a staple in the Spanish classroom.

Current research shows that learners of Spanish, whether they are native speakers or students learning Spanish as a second language, greatly benefit from practicing a variety of reading strategies that are scaffolded to their language proficiency level. These strategies, in turn, help them to develop their comprehension and production skills in Spanish.

And what best way to practice reading strategies than by engaging students with high-interest, low-difficulty literary (fiction) text selections!

When chosen carefully and considering the linguistic level of the student (beginners, intermediate, advanced), authentic literary texts can engage and inspire learners of Spanish, give them the opportunity to access the language, and acquire culture-specific content in new ways. As a result, students increase their literacy skills and their cultural and content knowledge.

This session discusses Common Core/standards-aligned reading in the K-12 Spanish as a World Language classroom. Participants will learn a variety of reading strategies that students can apply when reading Spanish literary texts (fiction) in the classroom by applying them to high-interest, low-difficulty literary texts of varying difficulty and levels.
