Reading for the Able: The Think Box.
Cassidy, Jack
Reading '83, v1 n1 p10 Aug 1983
A Think Box is a collection of independent activities based on one theme and housed in an easily transportable container. It is intended to be used as enrichment for students who have already completed their assigned work. The activities are designed to develop higher level skills such as critical thinking or creative reading. They can be part of any curriculum area, but they have particular applicability to reading. A Think Box generally contains 15 task cards, two games or puzzles, and three "other things." Included in this short article is an example of a task card used in a Think Box based on the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, "Little House in the Big Woods." (DC)
