The reading objectives presented in this booklet are the most recent in a series that has included one set of combined reading and literature objectives, two sets of reading objectives, and two sets of literature objectives. As presented in the booklet, the objectives reflect the interactions of reader, text, and process rather than definitions of discrete units that can be directly translated into observable behaviors. The four objectives discussed are that the student: (1) comprehend what is read; (2) extend comprehension; (3) manage the reading experience; and (4) value reading. The final section of the booklet discusses the development of the objectives and provides a list of subject matter specialists, teachers, school administrators, researchers, parents, and members of the public who contributed to their formulation.
