White, Brian F.
Journal of Educational Research, v88 n3 p173-84 Jan-Feb 1995
This study investigated the effects of autobiographical writing before reading on ninth graders' discussion and understanding of two short stories. Quantitative and qualitative analyses of audiotaped class discussion revealed that students who had written about relevant personal experience before reading were more substantively engaged in discussion and understood characters better.
