How Long Does It Take to Play This Author’s Purpose Reading Escape Room Game? 

We recommend that you allow about one hour to complete the author’s purpose digital escape room game. However, the digital escape room can be completed over multiple classes as long as the students keep their answer sheet open.

PLEASE NOTE: We highly recommend that you clear the computer’s cache after each group so that the answers are erased from the computer. This is because the computer will remember answers until you clear the cache. This means that if students from different classes use the same computers, the answers that the 1st class put in will be visible to the 2nd class.
