  • Love this, Amir. It is easy to test if what you have written is accurate. Just pick up a magazine you have read sometime back. You will notice that your eyes are captured by articles on matters that you are currently interested in and you will be wondering why you did not pick this useful information up when you read it earlier.

How To Speed Up Reading Tactics

  1. 1. How to Speed up  Reading Tactics
  2. 2. When someone asks or complains that they are in a  speed reading program and they are still sub  vocalizing, somewhere they have learned that this  habit that was formed in the early stages of reading  development, Many can not read much faster than  development Many can not read much faster than 400‐600 words per minute with this approach. 
  3. 3. Sub vocalization is the habit that is a four step  Sub vocalization is the habit that is a four step process 
  4. 4. 1. You see the words
  5. 5. 2. Then you say the words in your mind
  6. 6. 3. Then you hear the words in your mind, 
  7. 7. 4. Then you understand the words. 
  8. 8. The human mind can understand the spoken word  The human mind can understand the spoken word up to about 600 words per minute. 
  9. 9. So, it does hold you back from reading in the  thousands of words per minute range which is  possible with good training.
  10. 10. Reading can be defined as the mind s response to  Reading can be defined as the mind's response to printed text. 
  11. 11. The text is composed of visual symbols (letters and  The text is composed of visual symbols (letters and words). 
  12. 12. Therefore, reading is a visual thinking process. 
  13. 13. The mind can instantly respond to visual symbols. 
  14. 14. If you drive, you do it every day. 
  15. 15. Very few people read as a visual thinking process  Very few people read as a visual thinking process though. 
  16. 16. When first learning speed reading, 
  17. 17. You need to learn to move the eyes more fluidly and  You need to learn to move the eyes more fluidly and efficiently. 
  18. 18. The eyes are the mechanical part of reading. 
  19. 19. All speed reading programs focus on this. 
  20. 20. When dealing with sub vocalization, most programs  merely tell the learner to stop doing it, but don't  explain how. 
  21. 21. In fact, most speed reading programs treat  comprehension as a mere mention, but don't teach  the speed reader how to understand the material.
  22. 22. If you are learning to speed read, you do not want  If you are learning to speed read you do not want your mind to go silent on the material. 
  23. 23. You want to replace sub vocalization. 
  24. 24. In fact, even advanced speed readers will never  totally eliminate the sub vocal process.  They transform it. 
  25. 25. Sub vocalization needs to gradually be replaced by  Sub vocalization needs to gradually be replaced by you giving your mind a purpose for reading. 
  26. 26. What do you need from the material? 
  27. 27. What will you do with what you learn from the  What will you do with what you learn from the material? 
  28. 28. What can the author tell me? 
  29. 29. How can... (topic) be done? 
  30. 30. Asking a lot of questions of the material before  diving into the depth of it is one way to transform  how your mind responds to the print. 
  31. 31. Another tip is to ask yourself,  What s this about? Another tip is to ask yourself "What's this about?"  as you move through the text. 
  32. 32. As your mind seeks and sees the answer, you will  As your mind seeks and sees the answer you will "hear" something. 
  33. 33. What you are hearing is your mind. 
  34. 34. Some of the words might be in the text.  Some of the words might be in the text That's ok. 
  35. 35. The key is that you are not seeing, saying, hearing,  and then understanding every word as the author  has written it. 
  36. 36. Your mind is now responding, interpreting, and/or  Your mind is now responding interpreting and/or summarizing. 
  37. 37. You don't want to silence the mind!
  38. 38. Remember, if your mind is filled with the thought,  "Stop Sub vocalizing!" over and over while you are  Stop Sub vocalizing! over and over while you are trying to speed read, you won't understand the text.  You will have competing thoughts.  p g g
  39. 39. So worry less about sub vocalizing.
