The best place to start is at the end. I had a friend who would always read the last page of a new book before she started reading it so she knew where it would go. I could never understand how she could read the rest of the book when she knew the ending already.
When you’re only given minimal resources and you have to create a lesson from a book it can be overwhelming. Having an English book to work from can make it easy to get a bit lazy with the planning and just work from the book itself. The problem with this is the book lacks the kind of activities that make the lesson fun and engaging.
