What a wonderful idea. I really love your mention of the weaker reader preparing so that they perform well. This is a fine example of the aspect of authenticity that suggests that there be an audience beyond the teacher for the product of work produced by students. Responsibility for learning shifts from belonging only to the teacher to belonging mainly to the student. I want to share this idea with my English Language Arts methods students. Bravo!!!
