Although this site targets adults who want to improve their literacy, it is a great review for middle school and high school students. Practice picking out key words, scanning, and finding information from charts in the three activities. There are three activities with several questions each to help you practice. Feedback is immediate should you make a mistake. The wrap-up of the activities repeats what you’ve practiced and makes suggestions on how you can work on your own to improve your scanning skills. You will also find three videos that address scanning and reading comprehension skills.
