    The students are given a Symbaloo of extended readers related to Ecology. They are over 30 so they can choose any of them to start with. They can install a bookmarklet to control their reading speed and take a ER placement test to assess their reading level. Since they are all PDFs , they can annotate them with Kami, Adobe , Foxit or similar annotating tools. They receive a spreadsheet to choose a title and write their name in the second column. Take down useful notes in the third column. Insert a link to your doc containing main points and reflections on the book their chose in the fourth column.
