Description of session (in English):

With new US education standards calling for students to become better readers and communicators such 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)– reading and comprehending informative texts have become an increasingly important part every student’s education, even 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.

When chosen carefully and considering the linguistic level of the student (beginners, intermediate, advanced), informational texts can give students the opportunity to access the language, and acquire culture-specific content in several 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 informational texts (nonfiction) in the classroom by applying them to high-interest, low-difficulty texts of varying difficulty and levels.

 

Session Summary (in Spanish):

Los nuevos estándares educativos hacen un llamado para que los estudiantes adquieran cada vez mejores destrezas de lectura y comunicación y que saquen mayor provecho de los textos informativos.  Con este fin, esta sesión estará dedicada a la discusión de estrategias de lectura para estudiantes (de primaria y secundaria) del español como lengua extranjera.  La presentadora utilizará una variedad de textos informativos (de no ficción) para demostrar estas estrategias y así sugerir ideas para que el profesor le enseñe al estudiante a aprovechar la lectura, buscando que sean siempre apropiadas al nivel lingüístico del estudiante (principiante, intermedio, avanzado) y que a la vez sean de alto interés, baja dificultad y, siempre que sea posible, de altos contenidos culturales
