LSC Reading Lab
The Learning Strategies Centerís reading lab is a free service for Cornell students.
As a Cornell student, you may work in the reading lab in the following ways:
1. Personal Reading Consultation: You can work one on one with the Learning Labs Coordinator to discuss your reading habits and develop strategies for becoming an effective learner for each course you take. Through these consultations, you will learn to: (1) preview texts and look at the information in a new way; (2) keep the professorís purpose for the reading in mind; and (3) develop a plan for each assignment. This component of the reading lab program will help you become a self-reflective learner; students report that participation in these consultations has changed the way they study.
2. Computer speed reading program: You can work one on one with a peer tutor guiding you through speed reading software in the lab. These meetings focus on retraining your eyes and brain to read multiple words per eye fixation. These 20 minute sessions are like "eye gym." Many students double their reading speed after 6 visits to the lab.
