Finally, there are many reading strategies given from the workshop which have been useful and effectively applied to enhance my learning journey. The workshop enables me to give an awareness whether my reading speed is too slow or not by measuring the read words per minute. This measurement motivates me to improve my reading skills. My reading speed has improved from 132 wpm to about 200 wpm at the moment. Sometimes the speed could increase or decrease depending on the content of the text which new concept or topic will make me slower in reading and need to stop and highlight it.
Most of my action plans are able to be used during my reading time such as using a pointer, avoiding skip-backing, highlighting and recording key points after finished the reading. The most helpful strategy for me is using a pointer to make me stay focus and it also improves my reading speed by tapping the texts in the middle of the article in order to skip unnecessary words. On the other hand, I am still working on to reduce the subvocalization when I am reading a book.
In general, all the given strategies and tips from the workshop have made my reading time more efficiently and enjoyable. I will continue the two of my action plans, using a pointer and avoid skip-backing and still need to improve on my third action plan, reducing subvocalization whilst reading.
