Comprensión lectora y éxito escolar

Las claves para evitar el analfabetismo funcional

8% of the negative results in mathematics on PISA tests are due to students not understanding what they read. Experts have confirmed a new figure: the functional illiterate (“I know how to read, but I don't understand what I read”). At the same time, there is considerable evidence that relates the acquisition of the reading habit with l academic success, and considers reading as a predictor of academic performance. When and how should we begin to address comprehensive reading?
