Improved reading efficiency

Improved reading efficiency

You can read, right, that is why you are at Rhodes.  But can you read in an academic setting.  Do you battle to read a textbook or journal article?  Do handouts get you down? Do you feel you spend too much reading for what you get out of it?  Do you always understand what you read?  Do you sometimes get lost in what you are reading and doze off? 

If you have answered yes to any of these questions this course may be just what you need.  Consider it an investment into your future.

  • Read more actively
