For this Valentine's Day, Middle and High School students will choose the Best Couple of the Year from characters in any book or story that they have read for a class assignment over the years.
At least one woman and one man must be from the piece that they are currently reading in class. Students complete an About Me card for each character they choose by using facts from the stories and by making inferences using the information that they have gathered from the books they read.
Next, they analyze their answers and choose who would make the best match with the greatest chance of forming a permanent relationship. Finally, they defend their choices by explaining their decision. This is a fun way for students to show their reading comprehension and critical thinking skills.
