Cordero-Ponce, Wanda L.
Reading Research and Instruction, v39 n4 p329-50 Sum 2000
Reports the effects of metacognitive strategy training in summarization on the ability of foreign language learners to comprehend and summarize expository texts. Notes that the improved summary performance was maintained three weeks after instruction ended. Suggests that explicit instruction in the rules of summarization is an effective tool for improving comprehension and summarization of foreign language texts. (SC)
