Ewers, Cynthia A.; Brownson, Shirley M.
Reading Psychology, v20 n1 p11-20 Jan-Mar 1999
Notes that children either actively participated by asking questions or passively participated by listening to a recast containing a familiar synonym for each target word. Finds that children with higher vocabulary knowledge acquired significantly more words than did passive participants, and children with high versus low working memory did not differ in word acquisition.
