LSC Reading Strategies Lab

The Learning Strategies Centerís reading lab is a free service for Cornell undergraduate students.

As a Cornell student, you may work in the reading lab in the following ways:

-Learn how to read faster and retain more information:  In these 20 minute interactive sessions, you will work with a peer tutor who will guide you through different speed-reading and retention techniques. Students find these weekly 20 minute sessions effective and many double their reading speed after 6 visits to the lab.

-Learn how to read your college texts more effectively:  In this 45 minute session, you will work one-on-one with professional staff to discuss reading in one of your courses. You will learn how to: (1) preview text; (2) keep the professor’s purpose for the reading in mind; and (3) develop a plan for the assignment. This component of the lab will help you become a more reflective learner. Students have reported that participation in these consultations has changed the way they study.
