Text Structure and Title-Effects on Comprehension and Recall.
Schwarz, Maria N. K.; Flammer, August
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v20 n1 p61-6 Feb 1981
Describes two experiments testing the hypothesis that thematic titles largely relieve the reader of the task of constructing a sense from coherent texts. Finds that such titles significantly increase free recall of structured or slightly disorganized texts, while only prolonged reading allows titles to raise recall of an unstructured text. (MES)
