Constructing Meaning from Narrative Text: Cognitive Processes of Deaf Children.
Schirmer, Barbara R.
American Annals of the Deaf, v138 n5 p397-403 Dec 1993
The predictions that 48 students with deafness in grades 4-8 made while reading narrative text were analyzed to explore the influence of the children's expectations for text structure and content on reading comprehension. Findings indicated that interacting at a deep level with narrative text was more related to reader characteristics than to factors within the text. (Author/JDD)
