Blurb/Shorttext:
Reading is a goal directed activity. Text information that closely matches a reader’s goal is more relevant, whereas information that does not match the goal is less relevant. Relevance instructions are prompts that provide criteria for focusing reading goals. Relevance instructions help readers generate goals and specific strategies for reading, allocate resources in a more systematic way, and learn more. This book presents a taxonomy of relevance instructions and summarizes research on this topic. A model of goal-focusing is presented that explains how relevance affects text processing. A study examining the effect of specificity of relevance instructions on reading time and learning is presented.
