ABSTRACT
Texts are important tools for learning. Thus, the attempt to make textsmore understandable is a reflection of a purpose-function relatednecessity for learning from text. On the other hand, the idea ofdevelopment and recovery of informative texts via corrective teachingmaterials is frequently explored by contemporary researchers. Thus, it isevident that more advanced proficiency is needed for the illustratedaspect of the structure of texts in the learning process and to make theefforts to prepare educational materials at more scientific ground.Therefore, in this study textual organization and a general theory oflearning from texts are outlined and later language processing in workingmemory and related phenomena about learning from texts andindividual differences including information about texts development,texts comprehension, and inferences from texts are discussed. The reasonfor this is the idea that working memory is responsible for not onlyrecalling the stored information but also for storing the results of partialprocesses such as successive processes like language comprehension asexplained in the related literature for modern memory theories. Theother reason is the generalizations about the interaction between theprocesses of physical representation and pattern of a text manifested inaccordance with these ideas. Additionally, not only the differentprocedures used to develop informative texts, at the same time,differences of these procedures including a learner’s view of world andprocess styles and measurement of text comprehension and the complexrelations among them are the current and available information in theliterature. As a result, due to the nature of factors, which affect alearner’s level of recalling and his understanding from text, this studyaims to discuss this assumptions.
