Speed Reading/Study Skills Programs

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

One of the most important skills that students should master is how to study.  A person who knows how to study will not only do well  during all phases  of his education, but will be able to make his entire life an opportunity for learning.

Developing effective study skills, improving reading comprehension, discovering your own personal study style, learning to manage your time more efficiently and learning the best way to prepare for exams are just a few of the topics covered in the "Study Skills" sessions.  We are very confident that as students learn to apply the concepts and principles taught in this program, they will not only improve their performance in school but will also increase their ability to learn. 

The term "efficient reader" better describes the goals of students and adults interested in speed reading.  The good reader is one who is able to adjust his/her reading speed for the purposes for which he/she is reading.  Our Speed Reading sessions give meaning to various types of reading skills as well as practice using each one.  Skills include:

                    Scanning            Previewing                 Skimming              Reading for Main Ideas                Reading for Detail                      

Students enrolled in this program will also be provided with instruction in note-taking, outlining, and test-taking. 

All classes are held at the Akron Education Campus, 700 Ghent Road, Akron, Ohio  44333
