Stahl, Steven A.; And Others
Reading Research Quarterly, v31 n4 p430-56 Oct-Dec 1996
Examines processes used when high school students were presented with documents about the Tonkin Gulf Incident. Finds that mental models created by students were more internally consistent after reading at least two documents, but did not become more consistent after that. Notes that students tended to ignore information in the texts when giving their opinion, despite taking copious notes. (RS)
