Speed Reading

One of the unit studies the kids and I will be doing this year is learning about Speed Reading.  I don’t want them to worry about becoming incredibly fast readers, but I do want to expose them to what helps people to become Speed Readers.  If their reading speed picks up because they start to use these skills, all the better for later on!

We will be using the Maximum Speed Reading course.

And I am planning on showing the kids the following videos as we gear up to completing Howard Berg’s course.

You can find these and many more amazing videos over at
