The 11 titles deal with the following topics: the effects of a funded program on the attainment of reading and mathematics performance objectives by kindergarten children; a comparison of the reading success of Title I fourth grade students with students from two schools not in the program; the effect of phonics training on the transfer skills taught by a linguistic approach to reading instruction; effects of skills training and group guidance on reading and self-concept of children with learning difficulties; the expectations of black and white female teachers toward black primary students, and the effects of these expectations on the students' reading scores; using nonsense words as a means of aiding poor readers in the discovery of sound-symbol correspondence; a psycholinguistic evaluation of assisted reading as a remedial reading technique in high school; the effects of the home environment on reading; the effects of advance organizers and vocabulary on sixth grade reading comprehension; a parent tutoring program to increase reading enjoyment, oral reading, and comprehension skills; and the use of visual imagery to facilitate recall with learning disabled students.
