Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their reading speed and comprehension by at least 20% to 30% above their starting base rate. (Often students will begin around 200wpm, and increase to 350, 400wpm, 600 wpm, or more). They will learn when to use this skill and when to read at a slower pace. They will learn skills to maintain high levels of comprehension and retention as they increase their reading speed. 
Speed Reading is a skill that requires practice.  Students who do best commit to practicing speed reading 10 minutes a day during this course and after this course for the following 3-6 months to "cement" this skill in their reading habits and increase their speed with the long-term goal of up to 1000 wpm for certain types of reading. First create your habits, then your habits create you!
1. One or more chapter books at or below grade/reading level. A hardback that lays flat is best, books the student has not read before are ideal. NO DIGITAL BOOKS, NO CARTOON BOOKS, NO POETRY BOOKS! 
2. Pencil or pen 
3. Note book to take a few notes and keep track of their WPM/words per minute through the week. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
They will be assessed by timing their reading of the week, with 5 assessments during the week to mark their progress. They will be informally assessed on comprehension. Parents will receive a written report detailing their progress. 
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
