This collection of abstracts is part of a continuing series providing information on recent doctoral dissertations. The seven titles deal with the following topics: (1) the effects of two mathemagenic activities on ninth grade good and poor readers' comprehension, retention, and attitudes; (2) the effectiveness of the cloze procedure in developing reading comprehension; (3) the existence, persistence, and intensity of approach/avoidance responses to print among bright secondary school learners; (4) the relationship of age, reading ability, and text structure on adolescents' memory for expository prose; (5) the effectiveness of reinspection over recall for the comprehension of various question types; (6) the implementation of a junior high school sustained silent reading program; and (7) strategic difficulties in summarizing texts.
