Journal of Special Education, v31 n3 p300-24 Fall 1997
This study compared the effects of comprehension fostering strategies on science and social studies texts with 54 eighth-grade students with learning disabilities. Strategies included text-structure-based strategy, paragraph-restatement strategy, and traditional instruction. Text-structure-based reading strategies had a significant effect on information recall over traditional instruction and paragraph-restatement strategy. (Author/CR)
