Children's Use of Text Structure in the Recall of Expository Material.
Taylor, Barbara M.; Samuels, S. Jay
American Educational Research Journal, v20 n4 p517-28 Win 1983
Elementary school students read and recalled normal and scrambled versions of text. Superior recall for expository text was found to be attributable to use of text structure rather than a memory factor as a retrieval cue. Students aware of structure recalled significantly more of normal passages than scrambled text. (Author/DWH)
