Allen, Gary L.; Kirasic, Kathleen C.; Spilich, George J.
Child Study Journal, v27 n3 p163-77 1997
Rated first through fifth graders' political knowledge and recall of a simulated news story. Used path analysis to determine relationships among grade level, political knowledge, recall of specific story information, and generation of inferences from the story. Results suggested that children's domain-specific knowledge is more influential in generating relevant inferences from discourse than in recalling specific information. (Author/KB)
