Behavioral Objectives for Teaching Reading in the Primary Grades.
Wilhour, Jane Reinaker
To more effectively meet individual differences and permit children to learn at their own rate, a list of behavioral objectives for teaching reading in the primary grades was developed. Nongraded primary reading skill sheets were compared with reading authorities' lists of basic reading skills, and a master skill sheet was used as the basis for the development of a preliminary list of behavioral objectives. Sixteen authorities in the area of reading then evaluated the master list of 141 objectives. All the authorities agreed on 45 of the objectives; 15 of the 16 authorities agreed on an additional 32 objectives; and 30 behavioral objectives were excluded from the list by at least 13 authorities. The evaluators recommended reworking of many of the objectives, expanding them in some cases into two or three objectives. Each evaluator also suggested a few additional objectives, but no two people mentioned the same skill. A revised list of behavioral objectives was developed on the basis of the results of the evaluative survey. (Author/TO)
