    I am finding lots of ways to use Best of The Reader. I just did an information gap exercise using “Joannie is an Olympic athlete” and “Josh is a Paralympic athlete” from the Sports book. I made a chart with the same questions for both athletes (name, Olympics or Paralympics, age, where from, their sport, and what they want to accomplish in 2010.) I divided the class and asked half to read the story about Joannie and the other half to read about Josh. I gave them the chart and asked them to fill in the information for their athlete first. Then they had to ask their partners the questions about the other athlete and write down the answers. It’s great practice for asking and answering questions. I also wrote six other questions that they had to do together by reading both stories.

    It’s great to find out that teachers are creating their own activities for the stories in Best of The Reader. It looks like this one helps learners with all four skill areas—listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

    The Teachers’ Guide, which I hope to be able to post sometime in March, will have lots of ideas for enhancing and extending the content of the e-books.
