(Supplementary Materials for Specific Textbooks --English World 3)

Contains the script of the reading.  Teacher cuts it up and scrambles it before class.  In groups, students re-arrange it into the correct order.  Possibly while listening to the audio track of the reading.  Google (drive, docs, pub)

Quizlet: This was a fun little experiment we did in class one day.  After completing the reading, the students came up with their own questions and answers about the reading, which I typed up on the computer at the front of class.  Then they competed to see who could get the best scores in the games
