Class Experience

Students will improve their reading speed and comprehension by at least 20-30% above their starting base rate. (Often students will begin around 200wpm, and increase to 400wpm, 600 wpm, or more). Many will read much, much faster than that. They will learn when to use this skill and when to read at a slower pace. They will maintain high levels of comprehension (75% or better) as they increase their reading speed. 
Speed Reading is a skill that requires practice.  Students who do best commit to practicing speed reading 10- 15/minute a day during this course and after this course for the following 30 days minimum and up to  3-4 months to "cement" this skill in their reading habits and increase their speed with the long-term goal of up to 1000wpm for certain types of reading. 
1. Several different reading books at or below grade/reading level. Hardback is best, books the student has not read before are ideal 2. A calculator to quickly count the words and speed 3. Pencil or pen 4. Note book to take a few notes and keep track of their WPM/words per minute through the week.
They will be assessed by timing their reading at the beginning and end of each class session. 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.
