These classes are designed for struggling readers and generally have fewer than ten students. I had the best results with the eighth grade class, who better understood all my dating jokes ("sometimes you have to kiss some frogs", "sometimes you have to throw that fish back in", "if at first you don't succeed", etc.).
Because of the nature of the class, the students do not tend to be readers, nor are they generally intrinsically-motivated to read. They really enjoyed this lesson, and my eighth grade library assistants, who saw the speed dating as they worked in the library, all asked me to do this with their classes, too. For the reading resource classes, I chose high-interest genres such as horror, humor, manga, nonfiction, survival, romance, sports, and realistic fiction. For my classes, I added a second nonfiction table since it was full every time.

Between the continuing evolution of the RX100 and a7-series', Sony is on a big roll when it comes to tech.
And in this case, 'small' doesn’t mean 'insignificant'.
but from corner to corner, both their test scenes are a complete, tragic & miserable blur & lack of sharpness, all across the image area! I have an RX1R & can certainly avow that the Carl Zeiss 35mm f:/2.0 lens is an amazing piece of sharp glass.
It certainly has NOTHING to do with the IQ horror on the DPreview's test scene of the RX1-R a couple years ago & again now of the RX1-RII. This is almost as hilarious as DXO's mark on the RX1-R that scored substantially lower than the original RX-1, which in 2 words is both LAUGHABLE & IMPOSSIBLE! DXO's ratings are, by the way, the industries greatest joke! What isn't obvious (to me) from the scene comparison tool is which setting was used for the anti-aliasing filter.
Additional resources: Printable Speed Dating notes sheet (free from Librarian Vickie at TPT) Other ways to speed date with books: "Book Speed Dating"--The Mighty Little Librarian-- This one is very similar to mine, except in this one, the students stay put and move the boxes of books. This one gives alternatives to calling it "Speed Dating" and provides links to book speed dating-related printables.
"Building Our To-Read Lists: Book Speed Dating" by Sharp Read-- Same concept with younger students.
I've wanted to try it out for awhile now, and I finally went for it last week.
