Influence of Text Genre on Adults' Monitoring of Understanding and Recall.
Zabrucky, Karen M.; Moore, DeWayne
Educational Gerontology, v25 n8 p691-710 Dec 1999
Adults aged 18-34 (n=20) and 61-77 (n=20) read 4 expository and 4 narrative passages. Both groups read narrative more quickly, with greater recall. Reading times of older adults were hindered more by expository text. Regulation of understanding was affected by text genre, and ability to reread selectively was more critical to expository text recall. (SK)
