We encourage you to enroll in the Speed Reading and Study Strategies program offered by University of Alaska Anchorage, Continuing Education Department. In just two weekends, this course will increase your effectiveness as a reader and a student. As a result, you will be better equipped to manage the competing demands on your time.

When you complete this course, you will be able to read your textbooks twice as fast. In easier reading materials, such as most non-fiction books, novels, and journal articles, you will read three times faster. You will understand and retain information better, even while reading at these higher speeds. In addition, you will be able to prepare for tests efficiently, without extensive rereading.

Instruction for this course is provided by the Institute of Reading Development. The Institute has provided instruction for University of Alaska Anchorage for the past three years, and also teaches for many other leading universities and colleges.

This four-day program will meet on Saturdays and Sundays for two consecutive weekends. Program dates are September 26 & 27 and October 3 & 4 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.-5 p.m.

This is the only Speed Reading and Study Strategies program that will be offered this academic year. Enrollment is limited.
