Gelzheiser, Lynn M.; And Others
Exceptional Children, v53 n2 p125-29 Oct 1986
Two short-term strategy training programs were used to teach learning disabled 9- to 12-year-old students (N=42) to use an organizational strategy for a memory task. A three-rule program stressing the acquisition of specific strategy content showed a greater transfer of learning than a six-rule program teaching both specific strategy content and general, self-regulatory skills.
