Lesson 8 of 15

Objective: SWBAT to choose what rate of speed they need to use when reading different types of texts.

Big Idea: Speed reading has its place, but so does slowing down. It is fun to give our reading rate in terms of gears on a car. This helps them remember and make good choices about how to read different texts.
