Students calculated their reading rate. After reading for 10 minutes, students noted the number of pages they had read, then multiplied that by 6. That number is how many pages they can read in one hour. Then we determined how long it would take to finish that book by dividing the total number of pages by the number of pages in an hour. The point of this is for students to recognize that it's important to read outside of class in addition to our independent reading time. Students should also understand that the reading rate will depend on the book.
