Abstract

COSTA, Elis Regina da  and  BORUCHOVITCH, Evely. Learning strategies and narrative text production. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.2, pp. 173-180. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722009000200002.

The purpose of this research was to evaluate the efficacy of a learning strategy intervention for the improvement of quality in narrative production. It was based on a quasi-experimental design with three stages: pre-test, intervention sessions, and post-test. The quality of text production was examined by comparing two narratives (pre and post-test) in relation to text structure (presence of basic elements), level of idea articulation (hierarchy categories), spelling mistakes and number of written lines. The sample consisted of 35 6th grade students from a public school in Catalão-GO who were randomly distributed to experimental (N=18) and control group (N=17). The results showed that experimental group students produced better narratives in post-test characterized by adequate structure, good articulation of ideas and more written lines.
