7 Speed Reading Review Tips and Advice

7 Speed Reading Review

Many students are faced with a challenge of reading several pages before they feel tired or asleep. Some professionals who want to advance their education find it difficult to concentrate especially if they have other duties to attend to. Learning how to fast read is the key to achieving your goals in whatever you are studying. However, speed reading does not just happen; it requires efforts and some other factors. Based off of the many 7 Speed Reading Review online, it seems like it will be a great software.  The following are some tips that can enable you achieve your academic goals despite having challenges:

The posture – Every reader should know that reading is skill that involves thinking. So you must set an environment that will alert the mind. For instance, if you are reading while lying on the couch or bed, it is very easy to fall asleep because the mind assumes it’s time to sleep. You need to sit in a position which tells the brain that it’s time to read.

Get moving – You need to move your eyes very fast. Stopping your eyes at one word will make your mind relax; and thus, you will be unable to speed read. However, moving your eyes with speed may not bring a positive effect; you need to teach your mind how to comprehend or respond to the word.

Move faster – As you continue to read, increase the speed not forgetting to focus on the meaning of the print. Remember reading is all about thinking; so you must always keep the mind under control and try to see if you understand whatever is in the text.

Set the time – You need to set the time which you feel comfortable to read. Those people who schedule to read after work find it difficult as their mind is already occupied. Morning hours are the best as the mind is still fresh and it can absorb a lot of information.

Set the limit – Reading the text as if its urgent will enable your mind focus on the content and in this case, you will be able to understand more. Many of the best speed reading software advise this technique.

Good lighting – In case you are reading electronically, the background light should be dim, but the screen should be brighter.

Use the right brain fuel  – Many people get some food or snacks once they feel sleepy. Although you may pick up, it will not be too long before you fall asleep once the energy begins to burn off. Drinking some juice or taking fruits will do you better especially if combined with some proteins?

How To Help Your Child

Well parents, it is that time of year again. The time of year when your child will be heading off to preschool or kindergarten. This can be a trying experience for both you and your child. I remember the first time I sent my daughter off to preschool. As the day came closer and closer, the tears started to form and each time I looked at her, I knew pretty soon she would be going off to start her wonderful career in academia. On the first morning of school, I woke up pretty early and cooked her her favorite breakfast. I tried to stay as calm as possible, but I knew in a few short hours she would be out the door and on her way to school. I was so scared! Did I prepare her enough? Did I teach her all the right things? Like don’t talk to strangers, don’t eat off the floor? Wash your hands when you are done using the bathroom and make sure you wipe yourself? Listen to your teacher, and try your best. . . . (read the full article at the link below)

Online Speed Reading

Any high school or college student will tell you that they spend many hours lost in their books, studying for exams. In order to ace the exam, it’s essential that they know the material. In order to know the material that may mean reading it over and over again until the key details become ingrained in their mind. For a student who reads at a normal pace, this process can take hours and they may lose interest before they are adequately prepared.

A great investment for any student regardless of age is to spend some time learning speed reading. The process itself is relatively easy; it involves taking the reading skills that you already have, and boosting them up through the use of specific techniques. The goal with speed reading is to have your mind and eyes working in unison so that you are reading at a much faster pace while absorbing the meaning of what you are reading.

Students tend to pick up reading habits young. It is those habits that will influence how they read for the remainder of their lives. Some of the habits that children adopt that slow down their reading rate include:

Reading in a noisy environment. Many children play music loudly or have the television on while they are studying. Any loud noise is a distraction to the reading and although the child may read an entire passage or chapter of a book in one evening, they may not absorb any of the information if they are doing it while distracted.

Reading in bed. When anyone reads in bed, they may not be getting the most out of what they are reading. Body position is important to reading and being in bed doesn’t afford you the concentration you could get if you were sitting at a table or at a desk with the book directly in front of you.

Losing their place in the text. Reading an entire page of text can be laborious and a bit overwhelming especially for younger readers. Unless they are following with a bookmark or their finger, they may easily lose their place and either reread entire blocks of text, or miss entire lines of text. Incorporating a method of following text into their reading routine can make a remarkable difference.

Children can learn to adopt new methods of reading that will greatly improve both their reading speed and their comprehension. The younger these techniques are introduced the more beneficial it is to the student. Parents can help by encouraging the child to read in a dimly lit room, while seated at a desk or a table in a quiet room. If the child becomes accustomed to reading this way, they will already be well on their way to learning the basics needed for speed reading. Studying is a fundamental part of learning, and making it easier and more enjoyable will guarantee more success for the student.

Do you want to know how speed reading works? Are the claims you have heard true? I expose all the dirty secrets and explain exactly how REAL speed reading wo. . .

Educational Videos

There is much to be said about how much television is too much television for children. As parents we are constantly reminded that our children should not be watching television at all. We hear about the risks of Attention Deficit Disorder, overall disobedience, and many other terrible consequences. I don’t disagree completely, but I do believe this topic needs to be discussed in greater detail.

I have a two year old son. I allow him to watch certain television shows and/or videos. Do I use the television as a babysitter or some other form of replacement for my presence? Never. I choose these programs carefully, ensuring that what they project is in accordance with what I want my son to learn. I use the television shows as reinforcement for the tools and lessons I am already teaching him AND I always watch his videos with him in order to help clarify or repeat words if necessary. Let me share with you an example.

Ever since my son had the dexterity to be able to point to the different parts of his body, my husband and I have been rehearsing the corresponding words for him to learn. Over and over and over we repeat these words. We also use children’s books to share these same words. Throw in a couple videos of kids singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” and you have a child who can put all these images and words together. I am NOT saying that the video was the key ingredient that taught my son these words. I am saying that children, just like adults, learn in a number of different ways. Why not introduce them to the world around them through various types of media. I believe the combination of books, imaginary play, music, and the right television programs can assist children in learning more than just one of these avenues by itself.

I also believe children learn by watching other children. If you don’t believe me, spend a few hours at your local preschool sometime and just observe. You’d be amazed at how children (toddlers especially) imitate one another. In my case, my son is still an only child at this time. I do my best to take him to play groups, tumbling class, and any other socialization activity I can get him to. When he is around other children, I can see an increased desire from him to want to communicate with the other children – moreso than even his need to communicate with me! Having said that, he still spends the majority of his time without the company of other children. We own several children’s videos (and watch special television programs) that involve children his age and slightly older. He is able to see these children interact, communicate, dance, sing, and even display their good manners. These programs have been a positive enhancement to the social skills my son has picked up at home and at play.

The bottom line to this discussion is not whether television in and of itself is evil and should be kept as far from children as possible. It boils down to WHAT children are watching, how the programs are playing a part in the child’s overall learning curriculum (is it the only source or is it a supplement to many other resources?), and the importance of having the child’s caregiver nearby to interact along with the program. I take an active part in watching television programs with my son so we can learn and have fun together.

I realize everyone has their own views about watching television and I’m definitely no expert, but this has worked in my home and I hope by sharing my experience that you will be able to gain a little something from it. Best wishes in parenting!

Teaching Your Child To Read

At first I thought of titling this article “The Lazy Parent’s Guide” but then I realized that most parents aren’t lazy, but they may have a slightly different philosophy about children and learning.

If you’re a big reader yourself or if you’re homeschooling, you’re probably concerned about how to teach your child to read. Reading is one of the most important skills a person can learn, and a great joy in life.

My laid-back methods of teaching a child to read:

1) Be a reader yourself

Children naturally want to copy adult behavior. If your kids see you often with your nose in a book, they will probably begin to wonder what is so interesting about this activity.

2) Read to your kids

This is probably a huge no-brainer. Read to your kids early and often. And don’t read in order to “teach your child how to read”. I believe that the best way to teach your child to read is to NOT teach your child to read!

Read to your child because you enjoy it and it’s fun. Some forward-thinking education experts believe that the teaching of reading is mostly what prevents reading. After all, don’t adults read as a means to an end? Because they want to learn something or because they enjoy the act of reading?

3) Don’t worry so much

Don’t worry about a right or wrong way of reading to your child.

If your preschool-age child is not interested in books yet, or will not sit still for more than 30 seconds to finish a story, don’t fret.

If your 3 year old wants to point at pictures or turn to favorite pages and ask a million questions, don’t fuss.

Children learn in different ways than adults do and I don’t think anyone knows enough about the human mind to figure it all out. Make reading together pleasant, not stressful.

And don’t worry about how old your child is when they learn to read. If they are reading at 3 or at 8, studies show that it makes little difference in their intelligence or ability by the time they reach middle school.

4) Pick topics that interest your child

My oldest son’s interest in reading really skyrocketed when we started the Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snicket. We would sit for hours and read aloud together when he was only 5 or

6. Visit Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events for more information about these books.

These books were technically above his age level, but I advise you to forget all that.

John Holt, the legendary educator and author, has been quoted as saying:

“It’s nice to have children’s books, but far too many of them have too much in the way of pictures. When children see books, as they do in the family where the adults read, with pages and pages and pages of print, it becomes pretty clear that if you’re going to find out what’s in those books, you’re going to have to read from that print. I don’t think there’s any way to make reading interesting to children in a family in which it is not interesting to adults. “

So let your child pick books from the library or bookstore and don’t concern yourself about whether the titles are “age appropriate”.

5) Strictly limit TV and other electronic media

A growing body of evidence is pointing to the fact that TV, video games and computer usage are hurting our children’s interest in reading. TV and video games rewire the brain and teach it to be lazy. Reading is much more work, because the mind cannot be passive while engaging in it (unlike plug-in entertainment). Kids who get bored are more likely to pick up a book.

Above all, have fun snuggling up with your child and enjoy reading together!

Grants For School

Scholarship Defined

Scholarships can be confusing for parents, but they can save them thousands of dollars. There are different forms of scholarships, but all of them are essentially gifted money for college. Unlike loans, scholarships don’t have to be repaid. Some scholarships are paid to the student, while others go directly to the university. Scholarships are awarded by government, clubs, charities, businesses, schools, and other organizations.

Who can get scholarships?

Scholarship is not limited to straight-A students, and many students who believe that they aren’t academically qualified fail to apply for scholarships in their schools. There are, however, different types of scholarships for all students, including those with less-than-perfect academic records. There are athletic scholarships, scholarships aimed at students in a particular field of study — why, some providers give scholarships just for living in a particular state or city. Another misconception about scholarship is that only college-bound high school seniors are allowed to apply for awards. Scholarship is available to all levels of college study, from freshmen undergrads to graduate and even PhD students.

Scholarship Grants for Nursing Students

There are four types of financial aid available to meet the educational expenses of nursing students: scholarships, grants, work study and education loans. Most nursing students use a combination of all four to fund their education.

Scholarships are awarded based on everything from special abilities to your religion. There are many sources of scholarships, and an Internet search should uncover a number of scholarship providers.

Here’s how to get the scholarship you want:

• Take initiative

If you want to a scholarship, you’ll need to do the legwork yourself – no one’s going to track you down just to give you a scholarship. Look for scholarship grants whose criteria you meet, and then contact the provider and request a scholarship application packet. Applications may be requested by e-mail by sending in a self-addressed stamped envelope. You’ll never get a scholarship if you don’t try, so be proactive in requesting information for yourself.

• Be punctual

All scholarships providers set deadlines to which you must adhere, or else you’ll lose any chance of getting the scholarship. Don’t miss the deadlines – if you can submit all the required materials before the due date, do so.

• Be organized

Good organizational skills can really pay off. Try to keep your applications ordered by deadline date and give yourself plenty of time to complete the applications and send them in before the due date. Always keep letters of recommendation and transcripts on hand so you don’t have to get new copies every time they are required for an application. By doing this, you’ll not only save time but also money. Create copies of your completed applications before you send them in and then file them in folders with labels containing the deadline dates, mailing addresses and phone numbers of the scholarship provider. Call before the deadline to see if your scholarship application was received. If your application was lost in the mail, you can send the extra copy that you made.

• Be persistent

Don’t expect for the scholarship process to happen overnight. You must be diligent about looking for new scholarships to apply for. Remember that the more applications you send to various scholarship providers, the better is chance of obtaining a scholarship.

• Be optimistic

Stay positive about yourself and your chances of getting a scholarship. Your hard work and the time spent searching for scholarships will eventually pay off.

Let’s Read, Seminole! is a summer reading program that Orlando Public Schools got behind this summer. The Orlando Schools took a bus, painted it red, ripped the seats out and installed book shelves. The bus was then crammed with books for kids ages 5 to

18. Orlando Schools students can keep the books they take off the bus, or they can bring them back and get more. What an awesome program!

When I look back at summer vacations, I find that I was mostly bored. My best friend’s parents always took her to New York for the summer, and all I had to look forward to was a 3-week trip to my grandparents’ houses in Ohio. While I did have fun visiting them, most of the summer was quite boring, and lonely, to tell you the truth.

Orlando Schools Brings the Books to the Students

The big red bus intended to serve Orlando Schools students in the summer would’ve done me a world of good as a child. While I’ve always been an avid reader, meeting the bus would have given me something to look forward to. A lot of “latch-key kids” are pretty starved at times for contact with other kids. When parents of children in the Orlando Schools work or cannot be available a lot of children are left to fend for themselves.

As a child my family went to bookstores fairly often, but I often found myself with nothing to read unless I reread what I already had. I did plenty of that, but more and more times I sat down to watch Andy Griffith and Beverly Hillbillies’ reruns, instead. If my school had had the Orlando Schools program in place for the summer holidays, I’m sure that the vacation would have passed quickly for me.

I’m not bitter, however. Education has come a long way in schools throughout the country, and Orlando Schools are no exception. I truly believe that the schools I attended did the best they knew how at the time and have simply progressed over time to continually improve, as they should. Today, however, they are concentrating more on keeping students engaged over the summer months, and I applaud them for that. Orlando Schools have recognized the need to keep kids reading when they are off, and this will pr help retention of what the students have learned in the previous school year as well. Since the newness of free books will most likely wear off, the leaders of this program developed by Orlando Schools have also developed a website to encourage the kids to keep visiting the bus, and to keep reading. Orlando Schools students who have gotten books from the bus can log on, record what they’ve read, and in the process get a chance to win prizes. Not much else thrills a kid more than that!

This video introduces to community leaders to the idea that literacy involves gaining everyday, essential skills throughout the course of one’s life and in t. . .

A company’s database is the heart and soul of client information. Databases store valuable information such as contacts, sales and income, financial statements and organizational plans for management, and to lose their database means a business can no longer function. Optimal care and maintenance of databases are becoming more and more important, as old accounts bog up space or the difficulty in retrieving information slows down productivity. Not only that, security in administration is a must in our high tech world, constantly under onslaught from viruses, hacker attacks and other subversive tactics meant to steal data and destroy competition. Proper care and effective management in handling databases and their administration is vital to any successful business that relies on computer technology to function, and a DBA degree program will help you acquire the necessary skills to become an integral part of an administrative team.

A DBA degree program involves learning the skills and getting solid training to be able to design, create and implement databases for important corporations and businesses. Knowing how to administer databases is also part of the practical, hands on training you’ll acquire at educational facilities competent with information technology. Some institutions will include networking knowledge in the program so that you can effectively administer databases to their maximum potential. Learning the basics of networking and its application to database administration will help you become a valuable asset for multi-million dollar corporations or international businesses. Furthermore, a DBA degree will provide you with the analytical ability to troubleshoot and improve upon existing databases or design new ones that serve companies more effectively.

Security is a large part of working with databases and no company wants to discover that its database no longer functions, wiped clean thanks to an insidious virus. The popularity and ease of use of large capacity USB drives combined with curious human nature has made them a huge tool of those who would sabotage a company’s functioning and databases are perfect places to strike. Learning how to protect against such threats and knowing effective backup and replication procedures to further safeguard a company’s vital information is part of being a high quality database administrator. Only training will provide you with the abilities you need to meet today’s standards of safety and archiving and a DBA degree program offers that know how.

Career opportunities are widespread for those who have the backup of accreditation and degrees. The investment of time and money in going after the training you need to become a valuable asset to any company is well worth the pay off, as businesses will offer strong employment packages to those who will help them protect their important information. What’s more, a proper DBA degree program from a recognized educational facility will probably have employers come looking for you, rather than you having to pound the pavement with lesser skills. Colleges and universities also usually have career placement services available, with a bank of businesses looking for skilled people. The prospects of a strong, stable professional career are very good and the job market will open up to you, thanks to your newly acquired knowledge.

Finding a good, reputable educational facility to provide you with your DBA degree program is easy, as schools have developed websites with pertinent information for what you need. What’s more, many schools offer different forms of financial aid or will help you locate sources to fund your education. Searching the internet turns up plenty of facilities with programs geared specifically to the information technology industry and you’ll easily find a college or university that will give you the high quality education you need to be a contender in the database administration field.

Literacy For Kids

Developing tracking skills is key to your child’s literacy development. Tracking in reading is the ability to follow a line of type across a page from left to right and from the top of the page to the bottom.

Most educators agree that effective tracking skills are essential for understanding literacy and aiding learning as a whole, but some children have difficulty mastering tracking.

While a crucial step in learning to read, you can easily help your child develop these skills with many fun activities.

~ When you read to your child let them see you tracking by using your finger to underline the words as you read
~ Allow your child to explore books on their own and they will likely begin to mimic your behavior — tracing lines as they relate their version of the story
~ Make patterns with your child out of blocks, legos, beeds, or any other type of toy, game, or craft idea. Take turns making patterns for the other to copy.
~ Play games that utilize patterns such as hopscotch or board games. Create your own games indoors and out.
~ Use nature and real life to expose your child to tracking skills by watching a ball roll, a worm crawl, or a bird fly. Watch cars travel down the road or airplanes across the sky as your child gets better with tracking slower objects.

If your child continues to struggle with tracking skills then you might want to consider a software program created by educators (there are several on the market) to help with specific tracking activities.
