Super Reading And Dipping

Dr. Russell Stauffer, the author of Teaching Reading as a Thinking Process, showed that only 4-11% of text actually carries salient meaning. Super reading and dipping are strategies to quickly find and extract meaningful core concepts from written materials.

Super reading entails quickly moving through large amounts of text, giving your mind the chance to sort out and fixate on words that carry meaning. When you combine super reading with a well defined purpose, your mind will be attracted to key words, phrases, selections, and ideas. You bypass whatever is unimportant.

Dipping allows you to fluently read selected passages you feel will answer your questions. It is your chance to pause and savor the important facts and ideas as you choose.
