Power reading: boost your reading skills

How many hours a week do you spend reading? When did you last learn a new technique to improve your reading? 
So much of your degree will be spent reading and working out what the text says.  Come along to this session to max out your reading potential. We will work thorough proven techniques that will help you remember more of what you read and become a much more effective reader.  
By using previews and reviews you can boost your reading skills to work magic with your understanding.  Get your brain into the ‘hunt’ mode to capture the information you need to help you learn better, quicker and more effectively.
Learn to extract the information you need to become a better student. 
Suitable for all levels of students.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM MARGARET AHEAD OF THE SESSION:

  • Please note this is a longer than usual SHL session and is scheduled for 90 minutes. 
  • Please make sure you have your reading glasses with you.
  • You will need a copy of this file ahead of the event: SHL Reading pieces for students.PDF

The idea is that you can choose your format (paper, tablet or screen) by getting it ahead of the session.  So if you prefer paper, please print it.

However, please don't read it before the session as the idea is that it will be new material on the day. 

Please could you also have available a paper book, fiction would be best but non-fiction is OK if you don’t have one, that we'll use for one of the exercises.
