How to Improve Reading Comprehension and Recall Use Pre-Reading Tasks to Improve Reading Comprehension. Take action before you even crack open a book, article, or other Research the Topic Before You Begin. Background information typically appears on the covers or backs of books as well as. Active reading is like having a sump pump, a quality bucket, and a patch kit.

Not only does active reading improve your memory and reading recall, it leads to a richer understanding of the text and, in my opinion, a higher quality reading experience. Improving your reading comprehension level takes time and practice, but understanding where your strengths and weaknesses stand now is the first step towards progress. Step 2: Improve Your Vocabulary.

Reading and comprehension rely on a combination of vocabulary, context, and the interaction of words. Establish a purpose for reading. Identify and discuss difficult words, phrases, and concepts in the text. Preview the text (by surveying the title, illustrations, and unusual text structures) to make predictions about its content. Think, talk, and write about the topic of the text.

Although our results were inconclusive on the matter of whether infographics really aid reading comprehension and recall, it would be interesting to conduct a future study using time limits. The average time spent on the entire survey was 7 minutes, but we do not have specific data on how time spent differs in relation to the type of content. The process of comprehension is both interactive and strategic. Rather than passively reading text, readers must analyze it, internalize it and make it their own.

In order to read with comprehension, developing readers must be able to read with some proficiency and then receive explicit instruction in reading comprehension strategies (Tierney. To enhance working memory while reading, young children can get into the habit of becoming active readers. Encourage your child to underline, highlight, or jot down key notes in the margin while reading lengthy books. They might also use sticky notes on pages to write down and group together their ideas about the text.

For longer reading materials, like novels for book reports, make discussion questions you and your child can talk about together after each reading session. Recap and summarize the main points. When talking about the material with your child, ask him or her to recap and summarize the main points. The best way to improve your vocabulary is to use a dictionary regularly. You might carry around a pocket dictionary and use it to look up new words.

Or, you can keep a list of words to look up at the end of the day. Concentrate on roots, prefixes and endings. Find a quiet place where you can read without getting distracted. Your local library is a great option.

Turn off all the devices that you have with you, such as your phone or mp3 player. They will keep distracting you. Text comprehension is enhanced by.

Recall is a simple exercise performed by reading a page and then, with the page covered, trying to recall as much of the material as possible.

One way of increasing comprehension that has proved successful is to have readers with low vision continue to read daily, beginning with material that is easily understood, and then with material that is increasingly challenging.

A number of strategies are helpful and effective prior to reading, during reading, and after completing the reading assignment to aid with recall and comprehension.

Likewise, interventions involving large amounts of reading practice (not repeated reading) have similar, limited results (O’Connor et al., 2007; Wexler et al., 2008; see comments above on Failure Free Reading and READ 180).

It appears that fluency deficits are often addressed by providing extra reading practice in general, or by using the specific intervention technique of repeated readings.

  • What are the meanings of those expression?
    One smells with one’s nose.
    One sees with one’s eyes.
    One hears with one’s ears.
    One tastes primarily with one’s tongue.

  • Starts at 3:13 “The first 3 “R’s” to remember when it comes to understanding what you read:
    1. Reading (schedule your reading)
    2. Relating ( Talk to someone of what you read & tell them to ask you questions)
    3. Rite (take notes)

    P.S.. It should be “RRW” ����‍♀️

  • That was amazing! Thank you. I’m a 25-year-old starting college again, and I needed a refresher on how to be effective while comprehending course content. Great quotes and references to other materials as well. A+

  • I’ve was the type of person who really disliked reading. The only time i would read is for school assignments, and I slugged through the books, unless it was something i was really passionate about, in that case i would persevere. Other than that, the one way that really helped me get through the books and comprehend them was to listen to the audio version while reading the book. That’s the only thing that got me through the assignments

  • 3:47 Bro! I’d be happy if I could read 3 books per freaking YEAR!!! I only read at like 142 WPM, or less, so yeah, I need some speed to get motivated and I don’t think your tips are going to help me at all with that. ��

  • What if I don’t know how to read some thing and I don’t remember what you said then I was like we’re confused and I don’t want to do may you please help me with this because this week I have exam why did you want to take you each one myself for exam reading

  • In addition I recommend using colored sticky tabs to help finding underlined/highlighted sentences and paragraphs, thanks for the useful video.

  • Cheers for the Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about Bonaliyar Bizarre Blaster (do a search on google)? It is a great one off guide for teaching your child to read without the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my work buddy at last got astronomical results with it.

  • I’m only 14. When I was younger, I neglected reading and now, though I’m not behind, I still struggle with reading and comprehending within a time limit.


  • The way I read, I skim a bit to know what each sentence is about, and then I slow down to fully understand the important moments. Usually, I read about 2-3 sentences/chunks of text per page that stand out and I made sure I fully understand and internalize them, and make sure to look up any vocabulary terms I don’t understand. This is valuable especially for books that have been translated, because they are typically very inefficient in the delivery of their information. After I read the bits I find valuable on a page, I’ll sometimes look back over the page to ensure I didn’t miss anything. It’s not the fastest, but as a habit it can make getting through a specific book easier. I can read about a 500 page book a week if I focus on it. It also helps to read on the toilet, there’s no distractions there ��

  • I wish there was an option for giving more than one like to this video! You’ve done a great job in packaging the complex science of learning into a very simple yet effective strategy.

  • I hear many people keep on speaking about Rotogenflux Methods. But Im not sure if it’s good. Have you ever tried using this intelligence boost program?

  • I struggle so much with being able to explain what I read. I finish chapters thinking I comprehended it until I try to explain it.

  • i wish if the audio and video+your voiced tone be little bit faster and background music ummm,,,, more energized abit more.that would be a 5star,,,

  • Nice video content! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (just google it)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for teaching children to read minus the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend after a lifetime of fighting got excellent results with it.

  • First and formost, I wanna highly thank you sharing this video regarding tips how we can enhance our reading skills. As you mention, we can follow this method in case we know what we are going to read. But how can we apply this technique about something that we have never heard or seen it before.

  • Last day before my book is over due but i havent done anything and i just wanna do something else than reading and that something else is just watching youtube videos ��

  • I already used audio books:/ but here some other suggestions

    1. Lay on your bed and wear some noise canceling headphones and read

    2. Make your self do some excercise then use audible and lay down while listening ( DONT FALL ASLEEP )

    3. Do it at night (also helps sleep better)

  • What’s wrong with treating reading as an achievement? There’s nothing wrong with being proud of reading more books a week, as long as its for good motives, and for the love of learning itself. This is what motivates me. I see nothing wrong with it.

  • 3:55 no dude. I have to finish this boom before its due for my exam. And I procrastinated. That is why I m here. Not to flex but to pass my exam.

  • DUT Library management tem
    Hi DUT Library management my mane is Adane Abiyu I lived in Ethiopia may work experience 17 year from Academic Library deferent section in this time library head in Hawassa University Wondo Genet College of Forestry & Natural Resources

  • Hi there, have you considered Rotogenflux Methods yet? Simply just do a google search. On there you will discover that an awesome tips about how exactly you can increase your IQ score over 17 points. Why don’t you give it a shot? perhaps it’s going to work for you too.

  • Yeah, Im sure Benjamin Franklin did a study on it.

    What do peer reviewed scientific studies say?

    I would think you would want to read outloud with no background music (it would diatract and use the Wernickies Area) because your brain would be using both Brocas Area, Wernickies Area and other pathways, instead of a lesser amount of pathways (hint: if your certain types of paranoic you activate the teaching pathways too, # crazyadvantage)

  • Does Rotogenflux Methods really work? I see a lot of people keep on speaking about Rotogenflux Methods. But Im not sure if it’s good enough to increase your IQ of 20 points.

  • Cheers for the video content! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (just google it)? It is a smashing one off product for teaching children to read minus the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my cooworker finally got excellent results with it.

  • Einstein didn’t have crazy hair he’s mixed and has curly hair.
    Yup, he was a smooth black dude. Don’t believe me, research him.
    I love him too y’all but he apparently couldn’t stay faithful ������.

  • Thanks for the Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about Zanackson Pocket Buster (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a smashing exclusive product for teaching your child how to read minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my close friend Aubrey at last got excellent results with it.

  • thank you for the great tips. I particularly liked the reference and distinction made at 3:52 about speed read and learning speed and the quote at 4:48 by Scott Berkun “reading comprehension does not equal wisdom “

  • Never read a book without a pen at hand, I like this saying, a straightfotwrad way to deep comprehension. Thank you so much very helpful and meaty ideas������

  • What a great point with #5. I should be more concerned with learning the material rather than trying to rush through it. Thanks for the tip!

  • Funny, I find it easier to breeze thru non-fiction than fiction coz takes time to follow (like subtleties of nuance and foreshadowing). Non-fiction is like a spoon in the mouth if read like a t-bone. Find the thesis and work around the introductiona and conclusion. You’ll get what u need out if surprisingly faster than u think…

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard the talk about Bonaliyar Bizarre Blaster (Have a quick look on google can’t remember the place now)? It is a good exclusive product for teaching your child to read without the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my work buddy finally got astronomical success with it.

  • small question >KWL ( ‘K’ Know, before reading I should write what I know than “w” want to learn Also same as “K” before I read >the last is “L” learn what I have learnt after reading I should write). AM I RIGHT?

  • I finished a book with over 300 pages in four hours. I finished harry potter and the deathly hallows (759 pages) in 4 hours. YOU THINK YOUR FAST CHRONICAL LIVING

  • What is your take on using a pen while reading but writing new vocabulary down on a notebook next to you? Only time I really write, highlight, or underline in a book is when it’s in Chinese (Mandarin).

  • Emma, Please know that your service has reached to Somaliland, the Home of peace and Stability which located in Eastern Africa. I can’t tell you how much i appreciated your lessons and you offer them free of cost which is something i want the world to know to appreciate.

  • 1. Always read, never stop reading. This helps your brain understand and sequence how grammar is properly constructed and will help you read faster because your brain will instantly recognise words and lexicon.
    2. Avoid flashing lights and fast stimuli like videogames or play them sparingly.

  • I’ve got a 200 pages left for a school story that I have to submit an exam for in a few hours, sadly it’s not an actual published book, no audiobooks:(

  • I read about a books a day or two IF I read a lotttt during the day. But Im NOT talking about Textbooks. If I knew thats what youd be talking about I wouldn’t click on it

  • 1Always use a pen
    2Don’t highlight unless you completed a paragraph
    3Read out loud
    4Read silently and mark check on paragraphs you need to go back to
    5Explain what you read
    6Use summary words
    7Use highlighter
    8Mark words that you don’t know
    9Read a book called “how to read a book”

  • 1. Never read a book without a pen in your hand (scribble, circle, interact with the author) 2. Highlight interesting stuff post reading a section 3. Read out loud. You get more inflection 4. Think through as though you are explaining. Helps. 5. Xray the book. You don’t have to read everything in the book 6. Pay attention to summary linking words like “therefore” etc. 7. Underline, highlight and get back to those stuff 8. Mark words that you don’t know. Will boost your word power 9. Read HOW TO READ A BOOK

  • Hello Mr. Kwik, I did see your face, and/or your ads ‘here-&-there’ but I never look It (more deeply) I also seeing pictures where you are with a celebrity and like that. However, now I did starting to watch your videos/TED talks, etc. I started 2 weeks ago. It is just amazing the tips & guidance that you give to people all over. I would like to tell you two things Sir: #1-I am very sorry of what happen to you while growing up, including the oglines of some of your Teachers, friends, and/or other students. #2-I really would like to thank YOU for helping US. May Our Lord continue Blessing You Mr. Kwik!

  • Great Podcast Jim. I love your passion for learning and disseminating that knowledge. I also really like the way you make the subject matter fresh and interesting in a field where the material has traditionally been quite dry. Keep it up.

  • Thanks for the Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you researched Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (do a search on google)? It is a smashing one off product for teaching children to read without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.

  • I enjoy reading like an audiobook is playing my head. I give the characters different voices or sometimes I use a British accent for educational reading which helps me retain more of the information

  • I discovered this method myself after getting the audiobook of the book I was reading. It helps me with my comprehension and also speed. I often stop the audiobook and read the next chapter normally and I noticed my comprehension and speed also improves! AWS has the Polly service for text to speech so you can do the same we text on from email or other documents

  • Thank you �� this is realy helpfull but stiil writing papers for university is the reason I have failed higher education. I can get ready for tests even now at age 41 & I git 87 on a mini paper I wrote for a course but that’s about it. I discoverd my ADHA only a few years back & sufferd from PTSD due to a terro attack for most if my adult existance so I’v been working in minimum weigh jobs ever since & my financial situation is really really bad having to pay rent & all & all I really want is to become a screenplay writer which does’nt earn you much money. I wish I could afford a laptop & take actual classes & use this method here but I don’t think it would work with long long essays ������������

  • Jim referred to the doctor as “she.” I am now an avid fan. It’s little things like this that make such a difference. Thanks Jim ��

  • Omg I read with an audiobook and I read so much with it I change the speed because there so slow. And I read 5 in 1 with the audiobook but my dad said I it’s not good and plus I have a device at school to listen to the Audiobook soo:)

  • My young man took part in reading support services when he was in 1st grade. This excellent reading guideline ( ) has helped a lot in improving the reading capabilities of my son while he is on grade level and his progress really amazed his reading tutor. For me, this program must be utilized in classes

  • 1. Read with scheduling
    2. Relate to somebody else. Use own word, talk to them. Stay away to talking to yrself
    3. Write, handwriting. Organize yr notes

  • Nice Video! Apologies for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you heard the talk about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (do a search on google)? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for teaching children to read without the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my old buddy Taylor finally got astronomical success with it.

  • Your admission that you read text books rather than novels is quite important here.
    Practical subjects are much easier to read since normally, they fire your enthusiasm.
    Novels, especially romantic, require emotional fluidity and are hard for less sensitive people.
    Abstract subjects like maths and science are the hardest to understand since the vocabulary is very difficult and the subject often badly written.
    I am hopeless at reading. I have a very short attention span and often read a whole page, getting to the bottom without a clue of what I’ve just read.
    Even if I do manage it, the facts are very quickly forgotten anyway.
    This is why I am a lousy scholar!

    Reading fast is impressive, reading smart is productive.
    To read smart, use these 3Rs
    1st R READ (that is the obvious basic step)
    2nd R RELATE (discuss what you have learnt. This could be with someone else or a group)
    Make sure you are able to apply what you learn that’s the point of listening or reading it in the first place.
    3rd R wRITING (take organized notes as you learn, then write something about how you have processed it).
    hi, I’m a content creator. It matters to me to know if you found this summary ACTUALLY helpful. Kindly tell me in the comment section.

  • Late to the party but some very good advice. I have a difficult time writing in books. Particularly though, I read a lot on Kindle so no way to underline (only highlight) and any notes get separated from the text. Everyone says to write in books, but there must be a good way to make notes otherwise, especially for Kindle users? I’ve seen the Cornell note taking method but haven’t tried it yet.

  • Great video content! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you tried Bonaliyar Bizarre Blaster (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great one off guide for teaching your child to read without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my old buddy Taylor after a lifetime of fighting got great results with it.

  • -Wow, I’m reading an outstanding book about Chinese Philosophy! Everyone shoud read it!
    -Really? Tell me more! What is it about?
    .. ahmm.. I don’t remember a single idea from it..

    Thanks, I will read Adler’s book and apply what you said!

  • So I am still in school and I am getting tested on books. Some of them I can’t find a audio books like example, Guns for General Washington

  • Great tips, thank you! I’ve always been reluctant to mark or highlight my books, in case I pass them onto a charity shop (goodwill). But the new owners will probably highlight them! I hope you’ve managed to see the film ‘The Madman and the Professor’ all these years later…

  • Very encouraging. Thank you for sharing. I do most of these things naturally and thought something was wrong with me…especially because I read a book with a pen! I’d never heard the quote you shared prior to today. I always feel like I end up writing a book while I’m reading one because of how I journal my responses to the book!

  • Why do you have to write in the book? Isn’t taking notes the same regardless of whether it’s done in a book or on a separate piece of paper?

  • Hi Chronicle Living! I see that we are reading this same books:-). See also Rafael Badziag book cald “The Billion Dollar Secret: 20 Principles of Billionaire Wealth and Success”. It contain advice’s of nowadays 20 billionaires (not milioners). It’s really great! In my opinion even better than 4-hour workweek. It’s so much new knowledge in it. I really recommend it to You.

  • If you use this technique a lot then swap back to reading without the audio will you read faster? Does doing this improve your reading speed without it?

  • Visualization it has to IMPORTANT meaning to you 4:15, Relate part of your goals, talk your version to something teach heightens your recall with your desire feeling emotions to add extra sensory. about your reading to eles so you can correct your understanding of topic in depth, 4:20, 4:55, Who, What, Where, When, and Why
    8:35 talk about not to your self as it disappears to an object,
    it how it appears to your self, ask questions to inner focus on learning
    Left side you take notes
    Right side you make note
    Reading it again later your filter changes on events

  • Hi Jim… I have a 9yr old daughter who struggles learning especially maths and reading. I homeschool 2 kids so have been doing brain work…its going well but do you have any tips on memorizing times tables for maths? You are part of our schooling schedule!!

  • I wanna speed read because I can focus on becoming wiser and focusing on life only after I’ve comprehended enough to ace my test(s).

  • Thank you teacher so much for sharing this kind of fundamental tips and techniques to enhance our comprehension. I wish l knew it earlier��

  • Great video, but I disagree with the point about highlighting words you don’t understand, and then looking them up retrospectively. Firstly, if you don’t understand a word then you can’t expect to understand what’s being said you should look it up immediately. iPhone users I would recommend using Siri just say ‘define *word*’ and you get the definition within seconds. I also do this with podcasts or films. Secondly, looking up every word you didn’t understand in one sitting sounds very tedious. Other than that, great tips!

  • Watching this during 2020 on quarantine. I try to read often and sometimes feel disappointed or even kind of just dumb when I finish and feel like I can’t explain certain things. I was doing barely any of these tips and think this will really help. Great video! Hope you’re doing well right now.

  • I went all the way through public school, high school and university, not knowing how to study. I finally learned how to study when I went back to university in evenings when 32 years old. I have to take 1st year math which I think was pretty much everything you ever took in high school plus a bit more. Geometry, algebra and trig I think (I hate trig). Lectures on Monday and Thursday. Full university credit in 3 months. 24 lectures.

    Sunday, Day 1 Skim the chapter in preparation for lecture. Do not worry about retaining 100%. This provides you with the 1,000 foot view.
    Monday, Day 2Go to lecture
    Tuesday, Day 3Do notes on chapter and do assignment
    Wednesday, Day 4 read next chapter in preparation for lecture
    Thursday, Day 5Go to lecture
    Friday, Day 6, Do notes and assignment
    Saturday, night off
    Sunday, Day 7, read next chapter re next lecture.
    Monday, Day 8, Go to lecture.
    Repeat for 11 weeks.
    Tough slugging but it worked for me. Got B+.

  • That last little bit is the kicker Is reading really the goal, or is it growth. Once, I read a nonfiction book, and kept reflecting on it for months afterward. My worldview changed over that period. Glad you paused to hit that point.

  • Thank you for the last tip! I’m actually one of those who used to love reading for what it is until it became a competition. TYSM for reminding me that my bookshelf is not a trophy case!

  • Hello Emma I learn Reading from your Videos clip was useful and I hope it can help me for my next texts because I’m so scared about reading and also Writing hope you stay health and a lot of health to continue to help unload students……

  • I’m glad I landed on this video. I’ve always wanted to read faster but I could never figure out if I’m following the words correctly.

  • Prereading/skimming is great idea. Learning a chapter in which you know nothing is difficult. By doing this you develop a scaffold, of the big picture, after which much easier to fill in details, when you go back a read it again. I’m one who reads nonfiction several times, fast and filling in more detains each time.

  • Lol remember reading a book about Oppenheimer,900 pages,learnt he had a drink problem,literally two pages on Hiroshima and Nagasaki,??

  • Brother can you please help me.
    When i read a book i got stuck with hard words and i dont like to find their meanings in a dictionary because it’s disrupt my reading.
    What should i do?

  • I actually thought I was ” weird” for doing that( arguing with the author). In fact,I love doing that! Plus I never read without a pen,if there’s no pen a pencil will do. Hmmm…I’m normal after all.

  • I love all the points you’ve made in this video as they’re all good tips but I just can’t bring myself to highlight and mark-up a novel because it would spoil the reading experience for the next person who might read one of my books. I would maybe mark-up the book I needed to study it, if it’s a self-help or philosophy book but not for fiction. When I want to give books away to free up space, I put them out on a street library. Can always use a notepad beside me to jot down notes on paragraphs I like or want to refer back to later.

  • 1. Read exiting, challenging, wide variety of materials. Reading is just another skill that needs practice to be mastered.
    2. Read about things that you are already are interested in this will allow you to form mental links between materials and your experiances.
    2.5 find a good place to study ( my favourite is reading while having a slow walk)
    3. Pre read the material that you want to go throught that means reading index, bold sentences, review questions.
    4. Skim or pseude skim the material that you come across which means just read random lines throught paragraph until you find something important and then read the important material with focus.
    5. Do something with what you learned like write a review summary, a list of ideas you found interesting, or writing the summary of the material in the comment section like me��.

  • I love the system and how it works It shows you how to easily teach your child to read using a perfect combination of synthetic phonics phonemic awareness skills and development.

  • I have problems comprehending words that i’m reading and honestly it frustrates me a lot. Since English is not really my first language, there are words that I just read without even understanding what the word is and continue reading then have no idea what the sentence was explaining about after reading it. I learned english through internet since I was a kid and the rest are from school correcting it but I wasn’t serious about school when I was a kid so my english isn’t really perfect i’m sure I make grammar errors that I am not aware of and sometimes I have to confirm it if its correct or not. Makes me think I’m just dumb and incapable of studying.

  • After watching so many videos on speed reading (which omitted other important factors ), I think your video presented the concept in an excellent way and raised some extremely important points.
    Thank you!

  • My ways to read faster:
    1)Read books that are hard to read. When you master hard reading, you’ll start to read everything else faster. 2)Don’t go back to read a sentence when you can’t understand it, however hard you try. Read the whole paragraph or chapter, and then go back to read it again. It will make more sense when you read the whole thing.
    3) Never ever read in a place with distractions, even small ones. Distractions are monsters that will ruin a whole read. When you focus only on the book, you’ll consume info faster and clearer.
    4) This might be silly. But it’s an important one. Never touch your face, don’t scratch your skin unnecessarily, don’t play with your fingers. All these activities takes most of your brain energy.

  • I rather read online than in book. Yet everyone want me to read books physically. But somehow I can read in video game easily. Plus with caption in video. Maybe I can understand with reference idk

  • My classmate has been reading like every day since early grades school, now she reads like two books a day and I’m crazy jealous of her >.<

  • I know this method improves when you are reading along with the audio, but does it actually help you read faster after you have done it for some time?

  • Thanks! �� I’m sure someone has mentioned it but Mortimer J. Adler’s “How to read a book” is quite the masterpiece. In the end, whatever you choose, Practice.

  • Very nice summary, trying to get my reading speed from 205 words per minute to 350 something so I can prepare for college. I’m doing this one book a week challenge starting today, my first title is “Money: Mastering the Game” by Tony Robbins. I’m going to need 90 pages a day with this big of a book, wish me luck.:)
