Speed Reading Tips Part 2
By: Study Tips Today
Speed reading involves the attempt to read words by groups, rather than reading word by word.
Reading word by word has many disadvantages. It is time consuming and tiring - it may cause eye strain. It can also make it harder to understand the text as a whole.
When reading word by word, the reader may waste time on trying to understand unknown vocabulary that is not essential to the comprehnsion of the entire text.
The reader may also vocalize or use his or her finger as a place marker when reading word by word, which cause reading speed to become slow.
It is recommended to read the text quickly first in order to get general idea of each paragraph. Then do a more careful reading of the text.
Pay special attention to the first and last paragraphs of the text. Also locate the thesis statement and topic sentences in each paragraph for the main ideas of the text.
