Scruggs, Thomas E.; Mastropieri, Margo A.
Exceptional Children, v58 n3 p219-29 Dec-Jan 1991-92
Evaluation of a classroom mnemonic instructional method to teach science content to 19 mildly disabled students (grades 6-8) found mnemonic instruction resulted in improved initial content acquisition, higher delayed-recall scores than traditional instructional procedures, and generalization of mnemonic strategies to novel content. Students overwhelmingly preferred mnemonic instruction over traditional instruction. (Author/DB)
