I had my first year students take a section of the story (Caerimonia) and act it out, drafting students outside their group if necessary. It went well. My third year students I had simply summarize what happened in their section. The same with the second year but their vocabulary is just not up to where they are (Book 3, Stage 26). I’m seriouly thinking of retreating to the beginning of Book 2 and doubling up in the readings. That will make for a poor treatment of each reading but I think they will be able to capture more of the vocabulary. Even if it slows down our pace in Book 3, we can make it up at the beginning of next year, but if they don’t know enough vocabulary to read a story without looking up every third word, it won’t be of much benefit to get so far.
