In class students read on their own for 1 minute
At the end of the minute they mark with an x how far they managed to read in that minute
Then everyone calculates their reading speed for that text (words per minute)
Then calculate total time needed to finish book.
They get a small card in the days/week/hours on it and put it in the number of hours (when and how many) it will take to complete reading.
Students track their effort/work for the Unit.
