Capitalizing on the Reader's Strengths: An Activity Using Schema.
Egan, Margaret
Journal of Reading, v37 n8 p636-40 May 1994
Describes a schema-awareness activity (used with sixth graders and college students) that provides teachers with a model of how students can use their past experiences and their ability to infer and predict when reading. Notes that the activity convinces students that they bring to the reading act much more than they encounter on the printed page. (SR)
