    Recently, I developed an English lesson where students read and followed a technical reading manual in order to build a small scale model of a dogsled from Jack London's The Call of the Wild. Students followed a template I adapted from the clean room lab at Dimatix Fujifilm (with permission) and added 7th grade language. Knowing they were using the same format as actual engineers in the high tech world, students were totally engaged while meeting a reading standard. It can be done.
