Reading and writing skills are also developed through activities such as reading product evaluation reports and completing surveys. Final Task: Students work in groups to evaluate popular teen products and present the results on video.The TRB is organized into 8 to 10 "lessons". Each lesson is broken down into three phases: Pre-Activity, Activity, Post-Activity.
