This package is designed for the teacher who needs to encourage students to read on their own, but also needs to provide progress monitoring of reading and comprehension. This package includes an editable calendar with chapter assignments covering a five week period. Each week has a corresponding quiz designed to verify active reading occurs. Also, a reading log with space for notes on character and plot development, vocabulary, and parent signatures is provided.
Suggested usage: This lesson helps to develop and monitor student independent reading. When assigning middle school students an assignment stretching over six weeks, it is imperative to monitor their efforts. Encourage involvement by offering more than one novel for kids to read. I pair Chomp with Lemons, and Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie. Perform a quick book talk and allow kids to choose between two or more selections. Making a choice makes a commitment.
