Abstract

The aim of this research is to study the impact of speed reading training on reading speeds and comprehension skills of secondary school students.

Experimental pattern with single group pretest–posttest was applied in the study. First of all, reading speeds and comprehension levels of the students were determined during the research, and then 20 hours of speed reading training was provided to the students every other day for 5 days.
