Developing Reading Comprehension in English Course Books for 7th, 8th and 9th Grade of Slovene Primary Schools
Petra Grdadolnik, 2019, master's thesis

Abstract: Reading is a very important part of our lives. As children, we encounter reading through picture books, and later we reach for more demanding texts. The child is becoming literate at reading, which is very important, and reading can also be a starting point for socializing – parents reading together with their children, socializing in book clubs, reading for a reading badge, etc. By reading, children do not only become proficient in reading, but they enrich their speaking skills. Speech, develop their imagination, gain a new source of information, become more versatile and more easily manage different situations. In all this, we should not forget that reading must always be a fun activity, not a constraint or exertion for a child or a student, and that motivation for reading is extremely important. In the master's thesis, I want to highlight the characteristics of reading and reading comprehension, by doing a more detailed analysis of the parts of course books that are designed to develop reading skills, and analyzing the survey, which will reflect students' view of reading comprehension in elementary school.
Keywords: Reading, reading comprehension, reading literacy, course books.

Comics as a literary-didactic method and their use for reducing gender differences in reading literacy at the primary level of education
Maja Kerneža, Katja Košir, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of the systematic use of comics as a literary-didactic method to reduce gender differences in reading literacy and reading motivation at the primary level of education. It was assumed that the use of comics would have a positive effect on pupils’ reading literacy and reading motivation, while also reducing the aforementioned differences between boys and girls. The dimensions of reading literacy and reading motivation were examined in experimental and control groups, before and aſter the intervention, by means of questionnaires and tests for pupils. The sample consisted of 143 pupils from second to fifth grade from two Slovenian primary schools in a rural environment, of which 73 pupils participated in the experimental group and 70 pupils represented the control group. Effects of the use of comics as a literary-didactic method were not found: using comics as a literary-didactic method did not have a statistically significant effect on pupils’ reading literacy and reading motivation. However, when the four-way structure of the research (taking into account the age and gender of the pupils) was considered, some subgroups showed a statistically significant increase in reading interest and attitude towards reading. No reduction of gender differences in reading literacy and reading motivation was found. Based on the results, guidelines for further research are established and suggestions are offered for teachers’ work.
