Brozo, William G.; Brozo, Carol L.
Research & Teaching in Developmental Education, v4 n1 p21-26 Fall 1987
Describes a study designed to determine the differential effects of text with and without logical linguistics connectives (e.g., because, since, as a result) on developmental college readers' comprehension. Results strongly suggest that text with explicit connectives facilitates readers' ability to make inferences. Discusses implications for instruction. (DMM)
