Transcript of Speed Reading Secrets Revealed

Lirida Kercelli
Organized by NAPEC Speed Reading Secrets Revealed Did You Know? Snailers vs Speedreaders Secret #1: Overlining Secret #3: Triple Chunking Secret #2: Indenting Secret #4: Double and Single Chunking Eye Yoga ...most of us are still using reading skills that were first taught to us when we first learn to decode and recognize words Step #1: Use pacer to UNDERLINE
Step #2: Use your eyes to OVERLINE

Focus eyes on the UPPER halves of the letters
Ignore the pacer's movement - focus on your eye pattern movements :
Left Center Right Diving sentences into 3 multi-syllable words sections as you overline the sentences
(similar to chunking phone numbers) Double Chunking: dividing sentences into 2 multi-syllable word segments as you overline the sentences.
Single Chunking: dividing each sentence into a single packet of words as you overline the sentences. ...less than 15% of books sold were read past the first chapter
...even less are read/finished Let's find your current reading speed! Count the # of lines you read and multiply by # of words per line

# words read/# of minutes =
reading speed in words per minute (WPM) Under 120 WPM = Well below average reader

120-180 WPM = Below average reader

180-240 WPM = Average reader

240-300 WPM = Above average reader

300-600 WPM = Well above average reader

Above 600 WPM = Superior reader (why are you here?) hard focus: one word at a time
"tunnel vision" soft focus: a min of two words simultaneously Speed Reading
Principles 1- Release your head stress
2- Hold book at
30 degree angle
3- Always use a pacer: RasterMaster, pen or cursor 4- Peripheral vision: see both lateral left and right
5- Gently move your head
left-center-right Let's Practice! Two Step System 1- User pacer to force your eyes forward - ignore underlining
2- Focus your attention to the UPPER PART of the words -> Focus on eye movement and not comprehension Let's Practice! Secret #5: "Z" (Zorro) Pattern Secret #6: The Backward "S" Triple Reading Strategy 21-Day Practice Plan Read for ideas, thoughts and meaning Indent two words left and two words right while Overlining Let's Practice! Let your peripheral vision pick up the first two and last two words in each line Divide each line into a left, middle and right focus point Let's Practice! Double and single chunking while overlining Fun Fact: Where did speed reading techniques come from? Back in 1942 (WWII), the U.S. Air Force was having trouble teaching pilots to quickly identify enemy planes => training tool called 'tach-is-to-scope' (swift) - that flashed visual images on a screen to improve the speed of viewing Line 1: triple or double chunking
Line 2: sweep from right to left across that line to reach the beginning of line 3
Line 3: triple or double chunking Let's Practice! Big-Z Speed Reading: focus on the diagonal of the "Z" down the page Let's Practice! The Backward "S": focus on the reversed curve of your backward "S" as you flow down the page Allows the Z pattern to be adjusted and adapted to various difficulty levels of prose. #1 Skimming: Big-Z => find only the main ideas of the text (fastest)
#2 Scanning: Double Chunking => find the most important simple facts in the text (slower)
#3 Screening: Triple Chunking => create a final review of the entire text (slowest) Practice using Triple Chunking 15 min daily each and every day for the next 21-days Concentrate on exercising your peripheral vision muscles
Don't attempt to simultaneously improve your comprehension “Tihs is bucseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey ltteer by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.” Follow up @
