I picked up a teach yourself book at a friend’s today about speed reading. It states that with speed reading one can maximize their time and improve their reading efficiency. I’ve never met people who speed read but it seems like such a good idea. If we all could speed read we would be able to go through all of the information we go through every day much more quickly, allowing more time for our work. It leaves me wondering why speed reading isn’t taught in school as a skill – along with algebra shortcuts and writing short hand.
Do you think speed reading techniques should be taught in school? Do you think or know if it really helps?
