A four-day Speed Reading and Study Strategies Program will be held on The University of Toledo’s Main Campus for individuals who wish to improve academic, professional and recreational reading.

“This is great for freshmen who are overwhelmed with university-level reading and for nontraditional students and athletes who have busy schedules,” said Beth Dolinger, enrollment coordinator at the Institute of Reading Development.

Participants will meet at the same time on Saturday and Sundays for two consecutive weekends and will learn to increase reading speed and comprehension, as well as effective study skills and strategies.

The program will be held Oct. 24, 25, 31 and Nov. 1 and is offered at two separate times. Participants can enroll in either the morning session from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or the afternoon session from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Enrollment is limited.

“In last years’ fall program, 92 percent of students stated they improved their reading speed, and 100 percent said the same the year before,” said Betty Anzaldua, program director in the UT Department of Continuing Education and Workforce Development Programs.

This program is the only one offered during the academic year and it comes with a free lifetime repeat warranty, which allows participants to repeat the program at any time at more than 700 Institute of Reading Development locations nationwide.
