Reading Improvement (00:00)
Reading rate and comprehension can mean the difference between success and failure to students. Three strategies for improving both are presented in this program. The first suggests reading during the day, for short periods in a quiet place, for maximum efficiency. One method demonstrates how to divide words into groups on a page as an effective way of improving reading rate. The SQ3R Strategy (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, and Review), developed by a leading reading expert, is also examined as a strategy for improving reading comprehension. (12 minutes)
Prepare to Read (02:14)
Reading is an essential source for information and learning. Preparing to read includes reading during daylight hours, reading for short periods, setting reading goals, and reading in a quiet place.
Improve Reading Rate (01:55)
Improving reading rate includes training the eyes to make fewer stops or fixations per line and ask questions about main ideas and organization of the text. Practice is necessary for success.
Improve Reading Comprehension (05:27)
Francis Robinson developed SQ3R which is especially designed for textbooks. The SQ3R stands for Survey, Question, Read, Review, and Recite. Note-taking is part of this process.
