Kincade, Kay M.
Journal of Research in Reading, v14 n2 p81-98 Sep 1991
Examines students for the effects of grade level and recall task type on children's memory for explicit, implicit, and metaphorical information following reading. Finds that fifth graders fare better than second graders and the cued condition exceeds free recall. Finds that second graders engage in metaphorical reasoning when the task is appropriately structured. (MG)
