Excellent Readers: Speed Reading

Grades 6-8

Come to class with a book! In this class, students will learn the key skills required to speed-read, as well as three techniques for understanding and remembering what they read. Join a group of peers, as an expert instructor teaches you how to improve reading speed and achieve greater comprehension. Become much more aware of what is happening in the brain in 3 areas: speed, focus, and comprehension. When do they understand what they've read and when don't they? Students are encouraged to commit to practicing these skills in order to really see the full effect.

By the end of this class, students will know the skills to decrease the amount of time they need to read a school-assigned book. Students should arrive at class already very comfortably reading chapter books at or below their reading/grade level - please choose one to use for the duration of the class. Speed reading skills will be explained, demonstrated, and then students will be given time to practice in class, ask questions, and receive feedback during class time. Learn a skill that will serve you well for the rest of your life!
