Alvermann, Donna E.
Journal of Educational Research, v81 n6 p325-31 Jul-Aug 1988
Results of an experimental metacognitive training study of 64 10th graders suggest that graphic organizers, using precise graphical/ pictorial cues, improves reading comprehension of self-perceived, test-confirmed, low-achieving readers by inducing "look-back" or rereading of specific passages to locate test question answers. An appendix contains the passage used in the study. (IAH)
