Multipass: A Learning Strategy for Improving Reading Comprehension.
Schumaker, Jean B.; And Others
Multipass, a complex learning strategy designed to enable a student to gain information from textbook chapters, was taught to eight learning disabled adolescents. The instructional procedures involved a 10 step process including such procedures as describing the steps of the strategy, modeling the strategy, and student practice to criterion in both ability level and grade level materials. Results showed that students learned the strategy following the institution of training and generalized their use of the strategy to grade level textbooks. Furthermore, their grades on tests covering the textbook material improved after learning the strategy. Graphs with statistical data are included. (Author/SB)
