Using Visual Imagery To Help Chapter 1 Students Improve Comprehension.
This study determined if the use of visual imagery and verbal rehearsal would benefit readers who had third or fourth grade reading level ability. Readily available trade materials were used each totalling approximately 400 to 600 words in length and containing novel content to eliminate the possibility of prior knowledge. The study used the knowledge that students already possessed about video camera-recorders and the various functions of the camera-recorder: record, rewind, and playback. The measure of learning was the change in percentage correct in scores from baseline tests to posttests of 3 boys in grades 4 and 5. A multiple baseline time-series design determined that the study strategy improved students' reading comprehension scores. (GLR)
