3 Key Points to Successful Reading

reading5One of the key to success is to be able to read a wide range of topics in a short period of time.  Here is one strategy that was outlined in the book Remember Everything You Read by Stanley D. Frank.

Use underlining hand motion as you scan through text.

You move your finger from left to right below the text as though you are drawing a line under the words.  Below are the benefits of this strategy:

  • Helps coordinate your eye-hand movement for a quick read.
  • Steady hand movement keeps you from stopping at any single word, there by slowing you down.
  • This keeps you moving forward and prevents you from turning back during reading.
