This six-session, small group program - geared especially for ninth and tenth graders - is a recommended precursor to the (P)SAT and/or ACT prep programs.
The goal of the program is to train students to develop a reading range from 300 wpm to 1000 wpm. Ideally, once students have pushed themselves to high ‘practice’ speeds, their ‘habit’ reading rate will rise as well. Ultimately, students will become flexible readers in that they will learn how to adapt their reading speed based upon purpose and content.
Study skills and note-taking will also be addressed. Additionally, students will learn how to approach reading standardized test passages, newspapers, periodicals, reviews, novels, and textbooks.
