Dreher, Mariam Jean; Sammons, Rebecca Bell
Journal of Reading Behavior, v26 n3 p301-14 Sep 1994
Examines the search strategies of fifth graders who were asked locate the answers to three specific questions in an unfamiliar book, all of which contained terms that could be found in the book's index. Finds that students who were asked guiding questions before and during their search were more successful than their counterparts who were simply asked to search. (BS)
