This two page document replaces the antagonistic, dreaded and unfriendly reading log. Instead, here, I've asked students to focuses on standards taught in 9th grade English over the course of the year in a simple, pleasing and creative format. This novel log is due at the end of the novel - 3 per quarter for my regular freshman, 4 for my Pre-Ap's. No more weekly reading logs to grade or to suffer through summaries! Students, so far, seem relieved and receptive to the Novel Logs.
