5 Tips To Be A More Engaged Online Reader

5 Tips To Be A More Engaged Online Reader | Academic Writing HE | Scoop.it

The idea of speed reading has been around for decades, but there's been an explosion of speed-reading apps lately that promise to get you reading up to 400, 600, even 1,000 words per minute. But is it worth it? Are you really doing yourself a favor by blasting through e-mails at top speed?

Why Speed Reading Is Problematic

 

By using an RSVP app or even going through a speed-reading course, you can increase the number of words that you can read from 200 or 300 per minute up to and over 1,000. But there’s one serious drawback – comprehension takes a huge hit. Absorbing and internalizing the information that you’re reading takes time, and it often requires that you go back and re-read parts of passages to fully grasp their meaning.

In speed reading competitions, participants routinely only understand 50% of the text that they’re reading, which is far too low for learning important lessons or appreciating a piece of literature. Some experts even believe that speed reading a tweet would result in lower comprehension, and that’s only 140 characters.

36 redundant phrases to eliminate from your writing

36 redundant phrases to eliminate from your writing | Academic Writing HE | Scoop.it

...One way I’ve found to help readers is to use concise language and eliminate redundancies. As Strunk and White advise, “Make every word tell.


Below is a list of phrases in which every word does not tell. These phrases are redundant, repetitive, wordy, and verbose. Paring phrases such as these is an easy way to tighten your writing. (Redundant words are italicized.) 

• added bonus
• advance planning
• armed gunman
• circulate around
• close proximity
• completely full 
• consensus of opinion ...

The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - Infographic | Academic Writing HE | Scoop.it
Ever wonder why you can't figure out when and where to stick a comma? It's probably because commas, by far, have more rules and applications than any other punctuation mark. But why do so many people use the semicolon incorrectly? Comparatively, it should be one of the easiest punctuation marks to master. And why doesn't anybody seem to use the en dash?
