Exploring children's literature in the Spanish Foreign Language classroom : A study about the presence and use of children's literature when teaching Spanish as a foreign language. (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay aims to further investigate the role of children’s literature when teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Aside from examining if and how it is used, the study focuses on the reasons behind why teachers choose to include children’s literature in the classroom. According to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, there is reason to explore varieties of literature (Council of Europe, 2002). In addition, the possibilities of integrating intercultural aspects into the Spanish classroom through teaching literature are considered. Aiming to explore how Spanish teachers view and integrate literature and children’s literature in their teaching, a virtual survey was published in online groups for Spanish teachers around the world. In total, 24 teachers of varying ages, studies and experiences with literature participated in the survey. 

The findings indicate that children’s literature is present in some way when teaching Spanish, contrary to one of the hypotheses. Moreover, most of the teachers use children’s literature to teach reading comprehension and elements of language, such as grammar and vocabulary. Lastly, the results show that most teachers consider intercultural aspects and students’ personal development when using children’s literature in the classroom, confirming our final hypothesis. It is concluded that while the study analyses data on an international level, the findings may also be of value for teachers in a Swedish school context. 

Abstract [es]

Este trabajo tiene como objetivo investigar el papel de la literatura infantil en la enseñanza del español como lengua extranjera. Además de explorar su presencia, el estudio se centra en las razones por las que los docentes eligen incluir literatura infantil en el aula. Teniendo en cuenta el Marco Común Europeo de Referencia para las Lenguas y el plan de estudios sueco, hay varias razones para explorar los diferentes tipos de literatura (Consejo de Europa, 2002). Además, se investigan las posibilidades de integrar los aspectos interculturales en el aula de español a través de la enseñanza de la literatura. Con el objetivo de averiguar cómo los profesores de español ven e incorporan la literatura y la literatura infantil en su enseñanza, se ha publicado una encuesta virtual en grupos en línea creados para profesores de español de todo el mundo. En total, participaron en la encuesta 24 docentes de diversas edades, estudios y experiencias con la literatura.

Los resultados indican que la literatura infantil sí está presente de alguna manera en la enseñanza del español, contrariamente a una de las hipótesis. Además, la mayoría de los docentes utilizan la literatura infantil para enseñar la comprensión lectora y elementos del lenguaje, como la gramática y el vocabulario. Por último, se observa que la mayoría de los docentes consideran los aspectos interculturales y el desarrollo personal al utilizar la literatura infantil en el aula, lo cual confirma nuestra hipótesis. Se concluye que, si bien el estudio analiza datos a nivel internacional, los resultados también pueden ser valiosos para los docentes en un contexto escolar sueco.
