  • La competencia lectora. Una aproximación teórica y práctica para su
           evaluación en el aula

    • Authors: Antonio Díez Mediavilla, Vicente Clemente Egío
      Pages: 22 - 35
      Abstract: The current investigation shows, in the first place, an analysis and theoretical approach for the concept of Reading competence. This reserach works as a basis to justify that PISA (creator of this concept) doesn’t evaluate what it says to evaluate. So, we propose a new model of evaluation to assess the level of Reading comprehension, getting closer to the concept of Reading competence than Pisa has traditionally done. This research has been carried out with the participation of up to 7 classes of 4ºESO, the realization of two tests- the before mentioned one and a second one corresponding to an excerpt of a PISA test- and the later analysis and statistical comparison between them to find differences (if any) that confirm our statements and theoretical principles. For this purpose, test T has been used for related samples. The statistical analysis let us check that the new Reading approach proposed in the new model of evaluation, through which we intend to approach the concept of Reading competence, had
      as a main consequence a better performance of the students in the realization of this test; in comparison with the PISA excerpt that was used. This better efficiency in the carrying out, by the students participating, of the new test, include many investigative implications towards the understanding of different concepts related to Reading that, in many occasions, are easily confused, as well as implications of a practical nature, providing many orientations towards educational interventions in the Reading skill area.

  • Desarrollo curricular y recursos educativos en las bibliotecas escolares

    • Authors: Inmaculada Clotilde Santos Díaz
      Pages: 36 - 54
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to evaluate the curricular development and educational resources of the school libraries in Málaga. The provincial coordination of the Educational Local Office has carried out- since the academic course 2008/2009- an annual evaluation focused on five dimensions related to the actions of the Provincial Network of School Libraries. This Network is formed by the public schools of Primary and Secondary Education of the province.
      This article presents the most relevant results of the evaluation questionnaire for the 2014/2015 academic year in which 430 educational centres participated, offering a comparison according to the educational centre (pre-school, primary school or secondary school) and the school year. In general, there is progress in school libraries due to its normative regulation, the involvement of teachers in charge of libraries in collegiate bodies, the use of digital tools and social networks. However, there is a need to expand the opening hours of the library, to reinforce the collaboration of teachers who coordinate educational projects and to improve the sections and links of the web portals of libraries.
      On the one hand, these conclusions are intended to serve as a self-assessment to help school librarians to reflect and identify their strengths and weaknesses. On the other hand, they show the development of the key actions of school libraries, both their progress and their deficiencies, in relation to the standards established at national and international level.

The objectives are to expand the vocabulary of students of Spanish as a foreign language, to approach poetry in the advanced level Spanish classroom through different means which help us meet the challenge and improve the students’ skills in the field of reading comprehension, by using poetic texts. We will work with Antonio Hernández in order to exemplify the educational possibilities of poetry in the classroom of Spanish as a foreign language. Target key competencies in
      this paper are linguistic competence and autonomy of learning.

    • Authors: Sergio Vera Valencia
      Pages: 85 - 96
      Abstract: According to PISA 2009 results (OCDE, 2010), the Reading literacy of Spanish teenagers is under the international average, and reading motivation and reading habits are highly related to reading performance. And ass research reveals that teachers can be very important for the development of reading pleasure (Gambrell, 1996; Guthrie, 2008) specially if they are reading models (De Neaghel & Van Keer, 2013), the objective of this study is to explore reading habit and reading motivation in preservice teachers.
      To do so, it has been used a reading habit questionnaire for university students (Larrañaga & Yubero, 2005) and the reading motivation scale develop for PISA 2009 (OCDE, 2010) with 433 Education undergraduates of the University of Castilla-La Mancha.
      Results confirm the significant association between reading habits and reading motivation. However, while a high proportion of the participants declare high or very high intrinsic reading motivation, very few
      are frequent readers. In addition, differences in reading motivation and reading habit depending on the course were not found.
      Implications of the discrepancies found between what future teachers say and do as readers are discussed.
