Longer Term Effects of Pictures on Children's Story Recall.
Peng, Chao-Ying; Levin, Joel R.
In a study of the effects of pictorial stimuli on story recall, 64 second graders were randomly assigned to two experimental groups and two control groups. The learning materials consisted of two orally presented ten-sentence stories. The experimental subjects viewed pictures while the stories were read, and the control groups followed the printed text. Recall of the passages was tested by both verbatim and paraphrase questions posed immediately after the learning experience and/or three days later. Because the picture types were markedly superior on both occasions and on both question types, the results support the notion of the positive and long-term, as well as short-term, advantages of pictures on children's story recall.
