Speed Reading for Students (Video)

Hello BAM-iT! Edu Class,

How many of you have ever felt overwhelmed by the amount of reading you have to do for school? If you are a college student, you can definitely identify with this. So much to read! So little time! And yet, it must get done. Take a look at the video below to learn how you can cut through the work load with a bit more ease.

Video Key Points:

1.) Read the introductory paragraph then the conclusion paragraph.

2.) Then, read the first and last sentences of the body paragraphs.

3.) Go back and read more throughly if you have time.

4.) This method does not work on ALL types of writing but is generally good for reading informational texts and books. Use your discretion.
