The Learning Center is excited to announce our newly redesigned 5-week Speed Reading Course! Students who attend the course can expect to increase their reading speed and save time! Course registrants will have access to our Speed Reading software for a full year so they can continue to improve on their own after the course is complete, and students who complete the class will have access to ongoing reading skills support as long as they're at UNT.
The LC's Speed-Reading Program can help you improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your reading by:
Increasing your reading speed
Training in speed reading techniques via hands-on instruction and computer program exercises
Gaining hands-on instruction with techniques and strategies to support your reading comprehension
Topics covered include: foundations of speed-reading techniques, peripheral vision, phrase reading, how students learn best, and comprehension and memory strategies.
In the face-to-face sections, up to eight students meet once weekly for 90 minutes over five weeks.
In the online sections, new modules become available on your Canvas page once a week over five weeks. With no scheduled meeting times, this option is self-paced.
Multiple five-week sessions are offered every semester.
This class does not appear on your transcript or affect your GPA.
