Students need to have voice and choice in their independent reading – but we also need to hold them accountable for their reading and provide them with a structure to read, think, and write about what they are reading.
This Independent Reading Response Journal provides students with a structure to respond to their independent reading in written form. It contains 20 weeks of open-ended reading response prompts across different genres. Each week, students select two different texts within the specified genres and respond using the different sentence starters/prompts. Students may select books at any level, on any topic, as long as the text falls into the specified genre!
