The synthesis--completed by the National Center to Improve the Tools of Educators (NCITE) and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs--was conducted as part of NCITE's mission to improve the quality of educational tools that largely shape practice in American schools.Research evidence suggests that well-structured expository text facilitates comprehension of main ideas or topics, ... and eight expository passages on the comprehension monitoring and recall of 16 good and 16 poor sixth-grade readers.
