Forty third graders divided into average and below average reading skill groups were given a story comprehension task that consisted of two conditions, listen through and think aloud. Average readers generated significantly more explanatory inferences and comprehension performance as measured by story recall was significantly better for both groups in the think-aloud condition than in the listen-through condition.
