Can an Advance Organizer Technique Compensate for Poor Reading Conditions?
Stallings, Shellie L.; Derry, Sharon J.
Journal of Experimental Education, v54 n4 p217-22 Sum 1986
Two experiments investigate whether advance organizers (1) help subjects with good reasoning skills compensate for poor memory or information overload; and (2) compensate for distractions. Findings suggest that the organizer technique does not help compensate for processing deficits related to information overload or distracting study conditions. (Author/JAZ)
