Effects of Orienting Tasks on the Retention of Prose Material
Arkes, Hal R.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, 68, 5, 536-45, Oct 76

Intentional instructions had greater impact on less efficient tasks and less effect on more efficient tasks. Maximum recall and efficiency occurred with simple instructions to read the passage.
