YOMHA CEVASCO, Jazmin; BARREYRO, Juan Pablo; BECHIS, María Susana e MOLINARI MAROTTO, Carlos. Expository text revision: Are some texts better than others for comprehension?. Anu. investig. [online]. 2010, vol.17, pp. 327-332. ISSN 1851-1686.
Expository texts are an important tool for learning. The methods designed to improve their quality are called text revision procedures. The goal of this article was to present three of them: the argument-overlap procedure, the causal constructionist method, and the procedure of increasing coherence relations, in order to signal their possibilities and limitations. Given the results of the studies that have tested them, it is possible to suggest that the argument-overlap procedure seems appropriate to promote text recall, given that it facilitates the establishment of local connections. The causal constructionist method seems more appropriate to promote a deep comprehension of history texts. And, the method of increasing coherence relations seems appropriate to promote a deep comprehension of any expository text.
