Improving Reading Comprehension by Using Paragraph Restatements.
Jenkins, Joseph R.; And Others
Exceptional Children, v54 n1 p54-59 Sep 1987
Elementary learning disabled students (N=32) were assigned to a control group or to an experimental group trained to use a comprehension monitoring strategy wherein important paragraph ideas were restated as they read. Restatement training improved comprehension not only under conditions matching the training task, but also those demanding generalization. (Author/JW)
