Through extensive research Jackie Alan Giuliano, PhD, and his team at the Center for Lifelong Learning have cultivated lessons designed to boost the number of words people read every minute and increase retained knowledge by revisiting the way the brain processes reading. The one-day workshop introduces successful techniques that stimulate the brain’s reading abilities and ready readers for the turbo-charged skills to devour two to six books, articles, and reports in the time it used to take to read one book or three cookie fortunes. 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 about brains. Meandering minds can bask happily in the results by reducing War and Peace to a mere short story.
The classes offered with today’s Groupon run in a sequence—students must first take the one-day Speed Reading workshop. After completing the workshop and a few weeks of practice, students can learn how to apply their speed-reading know-how to a college or work setting via the Strategies course. This three-hour class focuses on the nuts and bolts of higher education, such as researching and writing papers and taking lecture notes, as well as workplace tricks for quickly clearing out email inboxes and hunting for new jobs when the old ones start to spoil. After taking the Strategies class and practicing for four to six months, students can take the Advanced Speed Reading class to hone their techniques further.

About 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 and professionals 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 with the skills to excel at school, work, or while rapidly reading instructions to successfully diffuse bombs.
