When students are allowed to read books of their own choosing, they become more attached to the text and ultimately find joy in reading. These packets are meant for students to use on their own in the context of a specific amount of time or unit.
There are three packets, one for a novel study, one for an author study, and one for a topic study – that way if you have a variety of novels to choose from you have a format. Checkpoints and reading responses can be used as grades. Students will write letters to authors that they can send, too!
