Skimming and scanning

I've been looking for information on teaching English skimming and scanning skills to foreign students. I've come across the following links:

  • Reading Comprehension: Some very basic information on skimming and other reading skills.
  • Reading Skills: Provides an essay with intro and conclusion highlighted (as an exercise showing how much info can be inferred from these two sections of a paper).
  • Skillwise: A BBC site with useful links to lesson plans and materials dealing with skimming.
  • Skimming: This site has a basic description of skimming and scanning skills along with some good links to sites (e.g., a site for testing reading speed, etc.)

Other Reading Links:

Does anyone know of other good books or links?
