dc.description.abstractLa comprensión lectora juega un papel importante en el aprendizaje de una lengua. investigaciones previas han descubierto que, para lograr una lectura efectiva, es necesario que los estudiantes mejoren su comprensión. Sin embargo, se les ha prestado poca atención a las ayudas de organización gráfica y al uso de libros de lectura nivelados en inglés para apoyar el proceso de lectura. En este estudio, enmarcado en una investigación acción cualitativa, se utilizaron evaluaciones, planes de clase, diarios del profesor y encuestas con el fin de recolectar información acerca del impacto de los organizadores gráficos en la comprensión lectora de los estudiantes de segundo grado. La información fue analizada utilizando el enfoque de teoría fundamentada. En los resultados, los estudiantes dieron cuenta de la capacidad para entender textos nivelados y elaborar reportes de manera adecuada. Esto demostró que los organizadores gráficos son una estrategia efectiva para mejorar la comprensión lectora en los estudiantes. Esto teniendo en cuenta la etapa del pensamiento de los niños y toda la contribución de las ayudas visuales al proceso de aprendizaje de una lengua extranjeraes_CO
