    1. No need to pronounce each word to yourself.

    2. Try to perceive more than one word a time.

    Ex: Green Eyed Monster. (Phrase from Shakespeare)

    3. Skip over the difficult word and try to get its

    meaning from the context.

    Skimming is used to quickly identify the main

    ideas of a text.

    1. Read the first and last paragraphs using

    headings, summarizes and other organizers as

    they move down the page or screen.

    2. Read the title, subtitles, subheading, and

    illustrations.

    3. Consider reading the first sentence of each

    paragraph.

    Scanning Extract Specific Information without

    reading through the whole text.Every second, 1 hectare of the world's rainforest is destroyed. That's equivalent to

    two football fields. An area the size of New York City is lost every day. In a year, that

    adds up to 31 million hectares -- more than the land area of Poland. This alarming

    rate of destruction has serious consequences for the environment; scientists

    estimate, for example, that 137 species of plant, insect or animal become extinct

    every day due to logging. In British Columbia, where, since 1990, thirteen

    rainforest valleys have been clear-cut, 142 species of salmon have already become

    extinct, and the habitats of grizzly bears, wolves and many other creatures are

    threatened. Logging, however, provides jobs, profits, taxes for the government and

    cheap products of all kinds for consumers, so the government is reluctant to

    restrict or control it.
