Objectives Stated for the Use of Literature at School: An Empirical Analysis, Part I.
Klingberg, Gote; Agren, Bengt
This report presents a theoretical basis for literary education through goal analyses. The object of the analyses is to obtain clearer formulations of the subgoals of instruction with the help of literature, and to arrange them in logical sequence. Using 79 sources from 12 countries, an empirical study was made, and goal descriptions were formulated and classified according to content and pupil behavior type. The goal descriptions, a total of 1,161, are presented. The main groups of the goals are: aesthetic goals, ethical-social goals, language-oriented goals, logic-oriented goals, manual goals, goals of mental hygiene, nature- and technology-oriented goals, goals of physical training and health, society-oriented goals, work-oriented goals, goal descriptions without specified goal area, goal descriptions without specified behavioral aspect, and goal descriptions without specified goal area or behavioral aspect. The goal descriptions in the Swedish Comprehensive School Curriculum of 1969 are provided. Conclusions and recommendations for further research are made. (DB)
