$49 for a One-Day Speed-Reading Workshop ($249 Value)
The one-day workshop introduces techniques to stimulate the brain’s reading abilities and ready readers to devour two to six books, articles, and reports in the time it used to take to read one book or three cookie fortunes. Additionally, students learn to hone concentration, which can prevent drowsiness during reading. The Center for Lifelong Learning’s pedagogues of word digestion also impart a system for taking notes that can help brains quickly recall what they just learned. Meandering minds can bask happily in the results by reducing War and Peace to a mere short story. See the schedule to plan your workshop. Workshop locations will be determined after registration, but they are always in the greater Seattle area.
Center for Lifelong Learning
Akin to declaring that the sun is big, saying that Jackie Alan Giuliano loves learning is a giant understatement. The president of the Center for Lifelong Learning, Dr. Giuliano has embraced all forms of knowledge throughout his career, including a 20-year tenure at NASA, a PhD, and artistic endeavors in digital photography and the construction of dreamcatchers. Through extensive research, he and his team at the center have cultivated speed-reading lessons designed to boost the number of words students aged 12 and older read every minute and increase retained knowledge by revisiting the way the brain processes reading. They have helped those with learning challenges such as dyslexia build confidence and equip all students with the skills to excel at school, work, or while rapidly reading instructions to successfully diffuse bombs.
