Welcome everybody! Iím Dr. Diane Gross and I teach English 7, "Speed & Power Reading" here at El Camino College.  In fact, I wrote the course for ECC and I've been teaching it for 20 years.
 
Now I assume you are here because you are registered for English 7 or you are considering taking it.  My question to  you is Why?
 
Perhaps you are simply looking for a way to get three CSU/UC-transferable units and learn a useful skill to boot.  Possibly, you are here because this course meets the ECC General Education Requirement, "Communication and Analytical Thinking," for the A.A. and A.S. degrees.  Or, maybe, you heard that English 7 satisfies the English 2R requirement.  

Regardless of what your course needs are, I would guess that all of you have some interest in reading better and faster.  After all, this is a "Speed Reading" course! So the good news is...
Youíve come to exactly the right place! In fact, if you read all the lectures, take the quizzes, and do the assignments, Iíll make you a promise. Here it is:
 
PROMISE: At the end of this semester, youíll read approximately two to four times as fast as you did when you entered the course. And thatís not all! You will understand and remember what you read much better than before.

I'm not kidding!  So, if you're ready, the syllabus seems like a good place to start.  Just click here on "Course Syllabus."
