Using Short Reads in the Classroom

The cards are designed as teacher-led, small group activities and should be an alternative to other group activities. Because the cards are short, your class should be able to read, re-read and discuss a card in one lesson of 20–30 minutes. Students may complete two independent writing activities, which should each take between 10 and 20 minutes.
