Taking different perspectives on a story

Taking different perspectives on a story In 2 experiments, 176 undergraduates read stories from 1 of 2 directed perspectives or no directed perspective. Results show that an idea's significance in terms of a given perspective determined whether the idea would be learned and, independently, whether it could be recalled 1 wk later. These results are interpreted to mean that alternative high-level schemata can provide frameworks for assimilating a text, perhaps by providing "slots" for different types of information. Later, the schema from which an instantiated memorial representation of a passage was constructed may furnish the retrieval plan for recovery of detailed information. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Educational Psychology American Psychological Association

Abstract

In 2 experiments, 176 undergraduates read stories from 1 of 2 directed perspectives or no directed perspective. Results show that an idea's significance in terms of a given perspective determined whether the idea would be learned and, independently, whether it could be recalled 1 wk later. These results are interpreted to mean that alternative high-level schemata can provide frameworks for assimilating a text, perhaps by providing "slots" for different types of information. Later, the schema from which an instantiated memorial representation of a passage was constructed may furnish the retrieval plan for recovery of detailed information.
