Journal of Learning Disabilities, v32 n1 p36-47 Jan-Feb 1999
This study compared using explicit rule-based instruction and a basal-reader activity-based approach for teaching 40 fourth-grade students with learning disabilities to determine character motive in three types of narrative texts. Rule-based instruction was superior to the activity-based approach when teaching character motives irrespective of text type on short-term measures. (CR)
