Playing with words: L2 vocabulary acquisition and the use of popular tales. A perspective from the Involvement Load Hypothesis

Gema Alcaraz Marmol, María del Mar Jiménez-Cervantes Arnao

Resumen


Uno de los principales objetivos de la enseñanza en Educación Primaria en España es impulsar la adquisición de, al menos, una lengua extranjera. El vocabulario se considera uno de los aspectos clave para conseguir dicho objetivo. De hecho, se ha comprobado empíricamente que el conocimiento léxico ayuda a desarrollar habilidades comunicativas como la comprensión lectora o la producción escrita. Uno de los recursos utilizados para trabajar el léxico en lengua extranjera en el ámbito de Educación Primaria es la literatura infantil. De acuerdo con la ILH, el grado de implicación que exige una actividad puede incidir en el resultado de aprendizaje de quien la realiza. Nuestra propuesta pretende trabajar el vocabulario a través de una serie de actividades donde el vocabulario se trabaja con distintos grados de implicación según la ILH, tomando como base los cuentos populares.

Palabras clave


aprendizaje de segunda lengua; cuentos populares; educación primaria; ILH; vocabulario
