TEACHING READING IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE: THE READING BADGE AS A LITERACY TOOL
Simona Marolt, 2012, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Reading is a part of communication. Reading is important and the aim of reading is to understand the information given in the text. There is much information that we have to read in our everyday lives. We have to read timetables, newspapers, e-mails, text messages and information on the web; children read when they do exercises or learn. We read because we are interested in something, for fun, or to relax. Reading is a part of the learning process, as well. Reading develops knowledge of and interest in a foreign language. The Reading Badge is a movement that has successfully promoted reading quality literature in Slovenia for over 50 years; The English Reading Badge is an activity that promotes reading a foreign language. Books that are carefully chosen by the teacher provide a rich environment for both language and culture. Apart from choosing materials, the role of the teacher is to train students to use methods and techniques that contribute to better comprehension. The practical examples in the thesis are ideas that I apply with my own students. By reading various books and doing activities in connection with them, we can see how their motivation to read grows and reading improves. Wallace’s statement “We want to give learner-readers a reason for turning the page” (Wallace 151) is more than appropriate here, since it encourages good work on the area of reading.
Keywords: Reading, reading comprehension, reading motivation, reading in a foreign language, The Reading Badge.

Web graphic organizers as an advanced strategy for teaching science textbook reading comprehension
Marija Ropič, Metka Kordigel Aberšek, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper presents the results of the 5 months experiment in which the influence of using a web graphic organizer in the science literacy curriculum was observed. The interest of the study was focused on the quality and quantity of learning/understanding the explicatory text description from the science textbook. The experiment included students at the age of 8-9 years. Science and L1 class were integrated for this purpose: teachers were instructed to use web graphic organizer as a tool for visualizing the text structure on the level of concrete cognitive operations. The results show the effect of using the web graphic organizer on students' competence to find out what in the science textbook text is important, on the level of text comprehension and on the competence of comparing new information with the previous knowledge.

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.
