Abstract [en]

This study examined the relationship between reading comprehension, working memory (WM) and learning strategies. The results revealed that working memory predicted reading comprehension, both immediate and with one week delay. Having a strategy benefits comprehension and children with high WM span outperformed low span individuals in terms of more elaborated strategies. In addition, girls used significantly more and more elaborated strategies than boys.
