Tesis (Licenciatura en Lenguas Extranjeras) -- Universidad del Valle. Facultad de Humanidades, Cali, 2014 RESUMEN: This research aims to describe the treatment of reading skills in six English schoolbooks addressed to seventh grade before and after the issuance of the Colombian standards for English. This is an exploratory research and contains descriptive correlational features. For the collection and analysis of the data, we used the content analysis technique that can be defined as a systematic and objective analysis of the characteristics of the messages, especially the analysis of human interaction.
With this present research we pretend to continue the previous work done on speaking skills and it is hoped that this study can be useful for those interested in undertaking further research on the same topic and similar contexts.
