A Taxonomy for Processing the Literature on Reading Comprehension.
Manzo, A. V.
A schema for making possible a more systematic means of processing (reading and interpreting) the literature on reading comprehension is discussed. The system is based on classification of the literature into broad categories according to the aspects of reading comprehension which permit intelligent comparisons, contrasts, and insights. It is divided into the following seven categories: (1) pedagogy, (2) reading materials, (3) correlates of reading comprehension, (4) process analysis, (5) speculations; synthetical and divergent statements, (6) evaluation and diagnosis, and (7) reactions. An activity sheet, an overview of the taxonomy, a bibliography, and several examples of studies found in each category are included. Use of the included exercise is recommended for inservice workshops and graduate reading education courses. (CL)
