Does your school use Reading Counts or Accelerated Reader? Do you have students read books on their own for a class grade? Do you ever worry that students may not be reading, but merely taking reading tests in order to earn points?
At the middle school level, we've often had problems with students not doing the reading they're asked to do and we just weren't sure what we could do about it.
This form was created to solve the problem and give students practice writing a structured five-paragraph informational essay about a fiction book they've read.
Now before students take that reading test, have them complete the essay form. You'll get the opportunity to see if the book was actually completed and check their writing skills as well.
This form has been used successfully in grades 6th through 8th.
