RapidRead Speed Reading Course (City Employees Only)

Wednesday, June 28, 2023

Would you like to improve your reading speed and comprehension? Join us for the RapidRead Course facilitated by Jennifer Swetmon. She will provide lessons in how to integrate speed-reading techniques in the office, at home and in your personal life.

 By the end of the course, participants will have achieved the following:

  • Assess current reading speed and level of comprehension and create goals for each to be achieved by the end of the session.
  • Begin reading with a purpose and address poor reading habits such as mind wandering, subvocalization and re-reading the same material over and over again to comprehend its meaning.
  • Participate in reading drills and grammar exercises to become a more critical reader.
  • Identify the tools in your ‘Reading Toolbox’ and when to use each appropriately.
  • Become a faster, more efficient reader: fall in love with reading all over again, or, for the first time!
