The following book report was given to 7th grade students in the fall of 2016. Students were reading Linda Sue Park’s novel, ‘A Long Walk to Water’. Students had to read one of the supplemental reading books and create a “newspaper.” Students were assigned their book based on their fall 2016 NWEA scores. NWEA is a local assessment tool given to students to assess their reading skills and each student is given a RIT score which is converted into Lexile Level. Students were given time in the computer lab to type their project up.
