Reading: A Course of Study, Comprehension.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
Consistent with the philosophy that reading is an integral aspect of the total curriculum, the objectives listed in this handbook (developed by the Utah State Office of Education as part of a total course of reading study) are related to four dimensions of reading comprehension: literal, inferential, critical, and creative. For each of the listed dimensions, the handbook provides instructional objectives that are precise statements of measurable reading behaviors to be demonstrated by the student, and all objectives carry a number that identifies the subject area, level, and strand of each objective and provides information concerning the relationship of each objective to the general curriculum goals. The handbook also contains a statement of the goals of reading education in the state of Utah, a definition of reading comprehension, an overview of the total curriculum framework, administrative guidelines, the Barrett Taxonomy, and the reading and literature objectives developed for the 1980 assessment conducted by the National Assessment of Educational Progress.
