Are you getting the gist of what you’re reading, or are you completely clueless?
What you think the text says and what it actually means can be the difference between major success or failure. For example, “Orange apple green dance water sad jump.” You probably understand each of the words in that sentence and understand what they mean independently, but does it make sense? These classes focus on better comprehension of what you read, increased vocabulary and enjoyment of the material, books, web pages and/or emails, that you are reading.
These sessions cover…
- Reading strategies (skimming, scanning, chunking)
- Finding meaning in & from the text
- Understanding both the content & the context of the reading
- Overall reading comprehension & the ability to summarize what you read in your own words
