Some Thoughts About Cognitive Strategies and Reading Comprehension. Theoretical Paper No. 30.
Levin, Joel R.
Psychological experiments investigating imposed and induced cognitive strategies are reviewed and related to operations in reading comprehension. It has been suggested that comprehension differences between good and poor readers may arise from the way in which they habitually organize intra- and inter-sentence elements during input. Subject-generated visual imagery is singled out as a particularly effective organizational strategy. Implications of this research are considered in the context of aptitude by treatment interactions and individual differences. (Author)
