Last school year, I decided my middle school students were ready to tackle a book. I didn’t know how it would go, and it’s not part of the curriculum per se, but I felt like they needed a change in instruction. I had been reading about CI, but was hesitant to try it on my own, as I had never taught a book before. I decided to take a leap and try it with my eighth graders. These kids had 90 days of instruction per year, broken up into three thirty-day chunks since sixth grade. In a few short months, they would be going on to German 2 at the high school.
