Square bullet Activities

Adapt freely from an existing reading model or develop your own.

Have students design texts, workbooks, exercises, tests, a bilingual version, etc.

Allow the students to incorporate a work and study style that is congruent with the community, even if it doesn't make sense to you.

Give the students free reign to experiment with illustrations.

Mimeo the text; add linoleum-and-wood block prints of the illustrations, to produce an inexpensive cheap package.
