Offered on Campus this FallWe encourage you to enroll in the Speed Reading and Study Strategies program offered by UA Business Solutions. In just two weekends this course will increase your effectiveness as a reader and a student. As a result, you will be better equipped to manage the competing demands on your time.
Students completing this course have been able to read textbooks twice as fast. In easier reading materials, such as most non-fiction books, novels, and journal articles, you will read three times faster. You will understand and retain information better, even while reading at these higher speeds. In addition, you will be able to prepare for tests efficiently, without extensive rereading.
Instruction for this course is provided by the Institute of Reading Development (IRD). The Institute has provided instruction for The University of Akron for the past 17 years, and also teaches for many other leading universities and colleges. This is a noncredit class.
This four day program will meet on Saturdays and Sundays for two consecutive weekends. Program dates are September 6, 7, 13 & 14 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.-5 p.m.
This is the only IRD Speed Reading and Study Strategies program that will be offered this academic year. Enrollment is limited.
