    the skills that fall under a few different reading subtests on our state test (NCLB-mandated) are what drive my reading instruction.

    i think these subtests and skills are pretty similar nationwide.

    totally off the top of my head, here is a list of reading categories and the skills under them (for my state)--and there are lots more, this is all i can remember at the moment:

    literary analysis
    *literary techniques (simile, metaphor, etc)
    *story grammar (character, setting, etc)
    evaluative reading
    *categorize/classify
    *fact/opinion
    *bias/persuasion/validity
    interpretive reading
    *prediction
    *inference/draw conclusion
    *cause/effect
    *compare/contrast
    *summarize
    literal reading
    *main idea/supporting details
    *locate info (table of contents, index...)
    *following directions (labels, etc)
    *sequencing
    word analysis
    *prefix/suffix/base
    *word origins
    vocabulary
    *synonym/antonym
    *homophones (same sound, different spelling)/ homonyms (same spelling, different meaning)
    *context clues

    hope that helps!
