This study examined the effects of training community college students in two reading strategies, self-questioning and summarization, on their comprehension and retention of expository material. Eight developmental reading students from a community college in central New Jersey were taught the strategies of summarization and self-questioning and then were tested on their comprehension and retention of the passages they read. Results indicate that while neither strategy significantly increased students' comprehension, self-questioning while reading may enhance students' retention of textbook material.
