Greene, Terry R.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v52 n3 p354-74 Dec 1991
Second, fourth, and sixth graders were given passage of text whose material could be represented as four-level class inclusion hierarchy. Students were asked to construct external representation of passage and answer questions that required them to reason about contents of passage. Quality of representation and performance on question tasks were related to grade level and text manipulation. (SH)
