Content and Formal Schemata in ESL Reading.
Carrell, Patricia L.
TESOL Quarterly, v21 n3 p461-81 Sep 1987
Investigation of the simultaneous effects of and interaction between both culture-specific content schemata and formal schemata on English as a second language reading comprehension revealed that familiar content and rhetorical form yielded good reading comprehension. Results for "mixed" conditions indicated that content schemata affected reading comprehension to a greater extent than formal schemata. (Author/CB)
