- Fasten categories together with a ring, or keep cards in a dedicated box. Alternatively, have students cut and glue the task into their notebooks.
- Assign students a number, time, and standard at which to complete the tasks. With so many questions, it may not be feasible for them to complete every task. You may wish to assign them a given number of tasks (their choice) per per teaching period, with the goal of answering all tasks by the end of the semester or year.
- Be sure to utilize the Self-Peer-Teacher Editing Checklists that come with this package
