From the Paper:

"In the article The Effects of an Interactive Instructional Strategy for Enhancing Reading Comprehension and Content Area Learning for Students with Learning Disabilities by Bos et al. (1989), the authors wished to identify whether the traditional assumption that students with learning disabilities do poorly with managing spontaneous task strategies was accurate, and if so, identify methods through which learning disabled students could be trained to employ such skills. An interactive teaching strategy in which students were helped with note taking efforts was used as the study design format. Student ability was measured according to score performance on vocabulary retention in both long- term and short- term scenarios. Fifty students with learning disabilities that were selected for the study and were allowed to read and respond to text that was evaluated at the standard sixth- grade level of reading comprehension. Of these fifty students, twenty- five students were used as a control group to assess performance, and twenty- five students were given additional training in semantic feature analysis methods. The study measured the responses of those that were given interactive teacher aid during the note taking process against those that were not. The results found that those students in the experimental group significantly outperformed those in the control group in terms of their comprehension of the materials read and even outperformed their peers in follow- up assessment tests done to determine whether the SFA training skills were applicable over a long- term scenario."
