Advance Organizers That Compensate for the Organization of Text.
Mayer, Richard E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v70 n6 p880-86 Dec 1978

Advance organizers enhanced performance on questions requiring integration of facts from different sections of the text. Results of both studies were interpreted as support for assimilation encoding theory. Author/RD)
