Mental Imagery, Text Illustrations, and Children's Story Comprehension and Recall.
Gambrell, Linda B.; Jawitz, Paula Brooks
Reading Research Quarterly, v28 n3 p264-73 Jul-Sep 1993
Investigates the effects of instructions to induce mental imagery and attend to text illustrations on fourth graders' reading comprehension and recall of narrative text. Finds that images and illustrations independently enhanced reading performance and that, in combination, these two strategies resulted in impressive increases in children's comprehension and recall of stories.
