The Last Lecture is a great book. (The speech also can be watched.) It teaches so many life lessons. I have been using this book for the last few years in a senior elective course. My students read independently in class for 20 – 30 minutes. I find this method to be most effective for my classes, you may choose to use the book as an outside reading.
For the silent sustained reading, the students fill out a journal entry at the end of the reading session.
