Effects of a narrative instructional strategy on knowledge acquisition and retention from a nutrition education video [electronic resource] /

by Hack, George O.

Abstract (Summary)
ABSTRACT: In the present study, the researcher investigated whether a narrative instructional strategy had any effects on learning and retention when nutrition information and concepts were embedded into a narrative educational video. The researcher looked at the differences when information was presented through either an expository or a narrative instructional strategy to determine whether the characteristics of each type of strategy had an effect on learning. The narrative strategy included hermeneutical characteristics that differentiated it from the expository strategy, and the activities within the video followed a narrative plot structure. The expository strategy portrayed a classroom activity centered on nutrition, with no narrative plot structure or hermeneutical characteristics other than those of the classroom activity. Participants were 89 fourth grade students.
