Use in Class
I have already used this text in my classroom as a student read-aloud. Each student read a piece of the story aloud, followed by a classroom discussion. Afterwards we used the story to create a Venn diagram for the Real Number System. This was used in the Assistance and Reflection phases of PAR.
