Today’s Birthday: Evelyn Wood

It's January 8, and educator Evelyn Wood was born on this date in 1909.  She is best-known for her speed reading techniques which allow some people to read as many as 250 to 300 words per minute while increasing their retention.  We don't know for sure if any American School students can read that quickly, but our guess is that some can. Regardless of how quickly or slowly they read, American School students feel comfortable working at their own pace, and, after you enroll, you can too!
