Jimenez, Robert T.
Reading Research Quarterly, v32 n3 p224-43 Jul-Sep 1997
Investigates the strategic literacy knowledge, abilities, and potential of five Latino/a subjects (three were bilingual). Employs qualitative research methods and cognitive strategy lessons. Finds that students, with instructional support, implemented the focal strategies emphasized during the experiment and engaged in extended discourse which often formed the basis for accessing prior knowledge and making inferences.
