Production of own texts, which, after validation by judges, was administered to 87 sixth grade students of public schools in the municipality of Cuautla, Morelos. In spite of some inconsistencies in the specification of learning expected in the SEP’ program and some activities in the textbook, the structural models with confirmatory analysis, supported the structuring of learning communication competences and the expected learning these skills inherent, in reading comprehension and production of texts.
