Fukkink, R. G.; de Glopper, K.
Review of Educational Research, v68 n4 p450-69 Win 1998
A meta-analysis of 21 instructional treatments aimed at enhancing the skill of deliberately deriving word meaning from context during reading shows a medium effect size of 0.43 standard deviation units. Exploratory multilevel regression shows that clue instruction appears more effective than other instruction types or practice alone. (Author/SLD)
