Motivation and literary competence : A case study of two upper secondary school students of Spanish as a foreign language in Sweden (English)
Abstract [es]

El presente trabajo se enfoca en el papel que juega la motivación para el desarrollo de la CL en español como lengua extranjera. El objetivo principal del presente trabajo es explorar cómo los diferentes componentes de un curso de lectura literaria afectan la motivación para desarrollar la CL. Para ello, se hizo un estudio de caso de dos estudiantes suecos de español como lengua extranjera en una escuela secundaria situada en Sollentuna, Suecia. La investigación se basó en los portafolios de los estudiantes, así como cuestionarios y entrevistas semi-estructuradas realizadas con los mismos participantes. En los análisis de los datos se aplicó una combinación del método cualitativo, interpretativo y el cuantitativo para tratar de entender mejor y explicar los conceptos en cuestión desde el punto de vista de la totalidad del contexto de aprendizaje. Los resultados del estudio sugieren que el desarrollo de la CL está en correlación con la motivación resultativa e intrínseca, mientras que la predominante orientación motivacional del alumno no tenía un papel significativo para los resultados de aprendizaje en nuestros participantes. Por otra parte, tales elementos del curso como la posibilidad de elegir la tarea o el material, el uso de textos multimodales, la integración de las destrezas y una continua  retroalimentación tuvieron un efecto positivo en la motivación para desarrollar la CL. Los resultados del presente estudio pueden contribuir a una mejor comprensión de lo que crea la motivación, y como tal, servir como base para sugerencias para la enseñanza de literatura en L2. En las conclusiones se marcan posibles líneas de investigación futuras.

Abstract [en]

The present research paper focuses on the role of motivation of the L2 learners for the development of literary competence (LC). The overall aim of this investigation is to explore how different components of a literary reading course can influence the students´ motivation to develop the LC. The present paper is a case study of two Swedish students of Spanish as a foreign language in a secondary school situated in Sollentuna, Sweden. The investigation uses a combination of qualitative, interpretive and quantitative methods and attempts to understand the concepts under analysis within the learning context in its entirety. The materials to be analysed are the student reader’s portfolios, as well as questionnaires and semi-structured interviews carried out with the same participants. The results of the study suggest that the development of the LC is in correlation with the resultative and the intrinsic types of motivation, whereas the predominant motivational orientation of the learner was not found to play a significant role for the learning results of the participants. On the other hand, the motivation to develop the LC was positively affected by such course elements as a possibility to select a task or material, the use of multi-modal texts, integration of language skills and a regular individual feedback. The findings of this study add to the understanding of what creates the learner’s motivation, and also may serve as a base for suggestions for a competence-based literature teaching in a foreign language classroom. In the conclusions of this dissertation, possible directions for future research are outlined.
