Efficient Reading: Improving Speed and Comprehension

Description

Initially, you’ll diagnose your strengths and weaknesses in reading ability through a questionnaire that will show your reading habits as they presently are. You’ll learn to read more efficiently and thus improve your speed and comprehension through procedures applied for both casual and academic reading.

An introduction to reading skills will teach you how to be a flexible and involved reader, limit re-reading, and overcome habitually slow reaction time. Learning how to skim and scan will allow you to go through materials quickly. Building a better vocabulary is also a part of improving reading ability, and learning to use words in context and word origins will help in this effort.
