Abstract

The debate surrounding the facilitating effects of advance organizers rages on despite clearly cited limitations of their nature, use, and definition. The controversy continues because of a perceived imprecision in the definition of advance organizers. This review is organized around summaries of 30 experiments, which used advance organizers written in paragraph form, conducted during the past 14 years. Although not all of the studies report beneficial effects associated with advance organizers, the overall conclusion is that advance organizers facilitate recall. The article, however, first considers Ausubel's original theory of cognitive subsumption, followed by criticisms and changes to the theory. The final section of the article makes suggestions for future research.
