Boyle, Joseph R.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v19 n2 p86-98 Spr 1996
Fifteen middle school students with mild disabilities and poor reading comprehension were taught to independently create cognitive maps from reading passages. Comparison with a matched control group indicated that students who were taught the cognitive mapping strategy demonstrated substantial gains in both literal and inferential comprehension measures.
