This product makes for an excellent start to a short story story unit, especially if you are wanting to give your students freedom to choose the short story that they will read! This was how I arranged a short story speed dating event in my classroom: each student received a speed dating note-taking sheet. My classroom is arranged into 7 tables of 4 desks. At each table, I dispersed 4 copies of the same short story. I had students rotate tables after about 4-5 minutes of "dating" each story. So, ultimately, all students had dated all 7 short stories. In the end, they were able to choose the one that interested them most!
