Journal of Educational Research, v79 n2 p119-25 Nov-Dec 1985
This study of 98 sixth graders examined the effectiveness of reading and/or writing instruction in social studies that focused on text organization, main idea statements, and important supporting details. Results indicated that students who received reading instruction generally had better recall of textbook material than students without reading instruction. No other differences were found.
