Does Culture Affect Reading Comprehension?
Berliner, David; Casanova, Ursula
Instructor, v96 n3 p28-29 Oct 1986
Culture influences how and what people learn. When recalling what they read about an unfamiliar event, readers distorted information to render its meaning more familiar. Suggestions to help teachers be aware of culture incompatibility and to include a variety of perspectives in classroom materials and instruction are presented. (MT)
