Description
I teach Integrated Mathematics II. Although I never get to the end, each year I read "The Man Who Counted" to my classes. I still have time to get to my math curriculum, but the students seem more focused. Each chapter of the book has a problem that The Man Who Counted needs to solve. At times I stop and ask the students what they would do; other times I just read on through. I also have students volunteer to read.

Very Useful and Effective
Reflection
My students really like me reading to them; it probably hasn't happened since grade school! One of these years I'll get more efficient with my time and finish the book!
