ARNOUX, Elvira; NOGUEIRA, Sylvia  y  SILVESTRI, Adriana. Theoretical texts macro-structural comprehension and summary rewriting by primary teachers training institutes students. Rev. signos [online]. 2006, vol.39, n.60, pp.9-30. ISSN 0718-0934.

This article is part of a wider research on reading and writing teaching at teachers training institutes. The research purpose is to elaborate a diagnose about primary school future teachers’ discourse skills at understanding and producing explanatory theoretical texts. In this perspective, the evaluation test focuses on macro-structure comprehension and summary writing skills. Results indicate that 83% of the subjects do not do the task or do it wrongly, which shows they have developed rather few revision strategies, lack recognition of grammatical and discourse marks -specially those connected to explanatory rhetorical strategies- and make linear non integrative readings, apart from other problems that have been analyzed. The 16.5% left turn out to be right, but show scarce achievement of writing skills, evident in the highly reference text reproductive answers, the elaboration of low coherent texts, their low cohesion and insufficient explanatory autonomy. Drawing on difficulties found, recommendations are made for the aspects to be considered by a reading and writing pedagogy appropriate for this superior level of education

Palabras clave : Teacher training institutes; reading and writing skills; theoretical text; reading and writing pedagogy.
