Johnson-Glenberg, Mina C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n4 p772-82 Dec 2000
Examines whether teaching poor text comprehenders reading strategies will improve reading comprehension. Third through fifth grade adequate decoders who were poor comprehenders were trained for 10 weeks in either a verbally or visually based reciprocal teaching program. Results reveal that training reading comprehension strategies in small groups enhanced comprehension, as the experimental groups made significant gains on 11 measures.
