Are you looking for a template to use for your middle school students that will prompt them how to preview a new book? I have used this printable with my 6th and 7th grade Reading classes. At the beginning of the school year, some students will say they can't find anything to read.
Instead of just telling them what aspects of the book to look at in determining if a book might be a good read, I made up this template to guide them through the steps.
Hope you find it useful for your students also!
