The 8 Key to Reading

Recognition 

The reader’s knowledge of the alphabetic symbols. This step takes place almost before the physical aspect of reading begins.

Assimilation

The physical process by which light is reflected from the word and it’s received by the eye then transmitted via optic nerve to the brain.

Intra-integration 

The equivalent to basic comprehension and refers to the linking of all parts of the information being read with all other appropriate parts. 

Extra-integration 

This includes analysis, criticism, appreciation, selection, and rejection. The process in which the reader brings the whole body of the previous knowledge to the new knowledge one is reading, making the appropriate connections. 

Retention 

The basic storage of information. Storage can itself become a problem. Most readers will have experienced entering an examination room and storing most of their information during the two hour exam period. Storage, then, is not enough in itself and must be accompanied by a recall.

Recall

The ability to get back out of storage that which is needed, preferably when it is needed.

Communication 

The use to which the information is immediately or eventually put includes the very important subdivision: thinking.

Metronome 

For each different genre/types of books, make your own melodic mood of reading.

In addition to our purpose of reading is the absence of information about our brain lies in our approach to the initial teaching of reading. Most of you reading this article who are above 25 will probably have been taught by the Phonic or Alphabet Method. Others will probably have been taught by either this or by the Look and Say Method, whichever methods benefit an individual the most.

Our Reading Processes

As we get older our bodies age, from our skin and joints to organs and muscles, but our eyes age too. When we are young the lenses within the eyes, called the natural crystalline lens, is clear and flexible, and can focus freely from near to far. People of all ages may need the use of glasses to help them see distance or closer, but when we are younger this is usually due to the shape of the eye.

Even aging with time, our purpose of reading with our eye moves as slowly as one line per second, words would be covered at the rate of 600-700 words per minute (wpm). As the average reading speed on even light material is 240 wpm, it can be seen that even those estimating slower speeds assume that they cover words much more rapidly than they really do. 

It is recommended to read for 4 hours a day, the more you read the better you will understand the fundamental of self-development.

Our fingers contribute to helping us read with our eyes, our eyes follow our forefingers from left to right up and down and hold still. Though sometimes our eyes are back-skipping words in a sentence, causing visual wandering to the next sentence and back to regression. These are effects of a poor reader who are unable to aggregate the words in their conscious and subconscious level of completing a book or a chapter.

Faster reading can be improved and moreover we can achieve by doing these 7 Golden Rules for Reading Success from David Morgan Education.

There is a secret about improving your comprehension, speak fluently, and remember all the words of a language while you are asleep. Yes, absorbing complex information or picking up a new skill from scratch by, say, listening to an audio recording during sleep is almost certainly impossible. But research shows that the sleeping brain is far from idle and that some forms of learning can happen. On Youtube, there are many Learn While You Sleep Videos, which will enhance your cognitive skills in reading and learning something fast.

Moreover, a few readers may appear to be exceptionally uninformed to pursue something on account of known fantasies which are known to be MYTHS of Reading, these unfortunate consequence makes individuals consider more into overthinking, making life unfortunate without any respects in transforming their day by day values of healthy life in improvements.

Myths About Reading

Words must read one at a time:

Wrong. Because of our ability to fixate and because we read for meaning rather than for single words.

Reading faster than 500 wpm is impossible:

Wrong. Because the fact that we can take in as many as six words per fixation and the fact that we can make four fixations a second means that speeds of 1,000 wpm are perfectly feasible.

The faster reader is not able to appreciate:

Wrong. Because the faster reader will be understanding more of the meaning of what is read, will be concentrating on the material more, and will have considerably more time to fo back over areas of special interest and importance to the reader.

Higher speeds give lower concentration:

Wrong. Because the faster we go the more impetus we gather and the more we concentrate.

Average reading speeds are neutral and therefore the best:

Wrong. Because average reading speeds are not natural. They are speeds produced by an incomplete initial training in reading, combined with inadequate knowledge of how the eye and brain work at the various speeds possible.

The main purpose of reading is actually for us to improve our life into doing something better, either it could be physical or psychological, we humans try to find more adequate answers all over the pages we read. Reading is an undertaking requiring interest and effort; all things considered, the reader’s expertise has been related to understanding inspiration. 

Readers who are incredibly motivated decide to discover an opportunity to read in a time of their day, which thus will form into a lifelong reading habit. If a deep-rooted decision is made to do better, then poor performance will automatically improve.
