Both the Harvard Course in Reading and Study Strategies and Strategic Reader, an online version of that live mini-course, help students read more mindfully, efficiently, and effectively. These reading courses are designed for students, professionals, and others who feel overwhelmed by the volume and complexity of their reading or find that they are not getting what they need out of their reading.
Both courses address ten core topics:
Developing Awareness • Reading with Questions • Discerning Structure • Making Sense • Creating a Summary • Evolving as a Reader • Monitoring Your Understanding • Identifying Text Functions • Trusting Your Wits • Minding Your Memory
