Part 1: Introduction: Help with Reading


There is a lot of reading to do in our program. A number of students have asked for help in getting all their reading done.


Many students who are already good or excellent students feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of reading that they are expected to do. They have asked for assistance in reading their textbooks.


Other students, who are very bright, work hard, and exhibit strong motivation are not getting the grades commensurate with their effort and ability. This is because they are not great readers. They, too, believe that they could excel at their studies if they could just get though their reading, reading faster with better comprehension.

Question to Answer. What if anything would you like to improve about your reading of Course Textbooks and other assigned reading? Take out a blank page and write one paragraph, or so, about what if anything you would like to improve in your reading. Do this now before you proceed further with this assignment.

Now Continue on with This Introduction.

Furthermore, there is a wide variety of specific talents in each and every group of our students, and it has been shown separately that these individual talents can be harnessed to quickly improve each individual’s reading speed and comprehension and reading enjoyment.


What students have asked for was a reading program based in Diversity that would build on each person’s diversity and use that diversity as the strength to improve their individual reading.


We have a state of the art reading lab dedicated to helping you get your reading done in less time and with much more comprehension and enjoyment. It is based on using your strengths to improve your reading. You set the controls for your specific learning style.


Any course book in ASCII text can be read with this program.


So many students have experienced and stated and demonstrated rapid improvement in their reading with this program, that I (your professor) feel it is reasonable for you all to take an introductory look at the program and see if it will help you with this Course, or for that matter any of your other reading. Quite frankly, many students using this program have started to read the textbooks for the first time and these students have actually begun to enjoy the process, as well as the results.


Which of the following 15 items are goals of yours? In the blank line beneath each of the items below type or write the number of X’s between one and five that indicate your goal for this item. 1 X means I am comfortable with this the way I am right now. 5 X’s means I want to make a lot of improvement in this area.
