High Priority Objectives for Reading in Florida Ages 7 and 9.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Florida's 67 school superintendents nominated 112 reading specialists and 236 classroom teachers to select from a comprehensive list of reading objectives those which were relevant for learners in Florida, appropriate for mastery by students seven and nine years of age, and logically consistent with adopted goals. Department of Education specialists made a final selection of highest priority reading objectives from those selected by classroom teachers and reading specialists. The objectives were divided into four groups: (1) skills prerequisite to reading; (2) skills in the mechanics of reading; (3) skills to aid in reading comprehension; and (4) utilization of reading skills. The minimum objectives for reading are listed by age level and in the appropriate group. The easier objectives are listed first, while the more difficult objectives are at the bottom of the list in each group. There is an overlap between the lists for pupils seven years of age and pupils nine years of age. This overlap permits the determination of progress and retention for age seven to age nine. There are 66 objectives listed for age seven and 168 for age nine. (Author/WR)
