LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Reading is a crucial life skill that each individual should have. The problem is many learners will spend hours reading and have no idea what they just read.  Their eyes are moving across the page, but their mind is somewhere else. The end result is wasted time, energy, frustration . . . and having to read the text again.

Although learners are taught how to read at an early age, many are not taught how to actively engage with written text.

Active Reading is applying reading strategies before, during, and after reading a text with the overall objective of increasing comprehension (understanding what was read) and recall (remembering what was read) to save time and effort.

This lesson aims to improve the reading comprehension and public speaking skills of learners by reading and delivering a speech on the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People for Teens and connecting its principles to their lives. By completing this lesson, you will learn the steps to improve your self-image, build friendships, resist peer pressure, achieve your goals, and get along with their parents and others.
