I gave the students 10 minutes to go through their texts and find two passages that they had previously annotated that connected with any of the three big thematic statements we had co-created about “Strikebreaker.” I did this as well with my text.Then I invited a student to the front to have a reading “date” with me. Step 1: Introduce yourself and shake hands Step 2: Student #1 tells student #2 where his/her passage is in the text and reads it aloud.
I just told them to sit anywhere and that we would be moving soon enough. I am excited to add a fun twist for when I do this lesson again.We run regular evenings in Reading throughout the year giving you plenty of opportunities to ensure that this is a very special year for you.There are two options for you now: Either check availability on upcoming events or leave us your details and we can keep you up to date with future events that will suit you.Check Speed Dating in Reading availability Keep me informed of future Reading Speed Dating events At our Reading Speed Dating evenings, there will be experienced professional hosts to make sure you have a good time.On the night that you book onto, they will check you in, welcome you and once everyone has arrived, will run through a brief speech to let you know what to expect.We know of many people hiding their colleague crush under a metaphorical bushel, with the fear of rejection being so mortifying they never dared even risk it, but where else is there to meet your future soul mate, if not at work?

The vast majority of people who fill in our post event survey state that four minutes is better than three, and all research points to four minute Slow Dating being more successful than three minute Speed Dating so who are we to argue? Come to one of our Reading speed dating events, and you will be able to see for yourself.
Very impressed by the whole event from the website, the customer telephone service, venue, host and after the event and the matching system....particularly for nervous people and those who are not confident online. 12-15 dates in one night means there is a very good chance of your finding that special someone.
I've wanted to try it out for awhile now, and I finally went for it last week.
I wanted to use a smaller "test" group before trying this with a class of 35 eighth graders, so I tried it with our resource reading classes first.
Students with a spade or club (black card) get a "sour face" at the end of their book date (a warhead candy). Next time, we'll get to squeeze in more rotations since I won't have to take time explaining how it works.
