New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Speed reading courses are being held on college campuses around the world. The University of Cambridge, which Graduate Development Program on Speed Reading promises to be invaluable help to its students, is just one example and they have just concluded one speed reading class last June.
Several other colleges are now also offering speed reading classes to students as part of their overall class schedule. These courses are designed to provide students with basic techniques on how to increase their reading speed. A worthy skill, speed reading is unfortunately often overlooked by many educational institutions.
According to Marc Slater of 7 Speed Reading Software, "Learning how to speed read will help students get through the massive amount of work they have. It will make reading easier and quicker and result in a better level of retention. This ability will then continue to aid students significantly in their careers and beyond.”
Speed reading classes focus on helping students to identify their current reading rates as well as those areas which require improvement. Skimming and scanning written material effectively and efficiently is generally taught as part of a basic speed reading class. In addition, students are provided with strategies to enhance their level of comprehension, retention, and recall of written material whether reading materials on paper or on the computer.
Many classes include presentations, demonstrations, and exercises to help students improve their abilities. While written materials are often provided, students are welcome to bring their own reading material if they prefer. “Hopefully, these courses will catch on at other college campuses too,” adds Mr. Slater, “because there is a definite need and definite benefits.”
While speed reading classes are spreading on college campuses, they are also available online. In addition, speed reading software, as provided by 7 Speed Reading, can help students improve their reading abilities. Students must have commitment, time, and patience to learn how to effectively speed read in order to be successful, but it's a goal that all students should strive towards, so that they can enjoy the many benefits of speed reading into the future.
