Great, already-made, journal for fiction reading.
It is set up as a Book Club Response journal. It explains the directions to the students, and includes questions for responding.
The pages are set up for two questions and responses, on each page. After 6 questions and answers, it will ask for the title and author again. This allows for the 6 questions to get answered each reading session.
I introduce the journal with students having to:
A. Make a prediction about their book, based on the back and flipping through the pages...then discussing their predictions with the members of their group.
B. Discuss if they will read one, two or .5 chapters each week, before time to meet...and signing off that they agree to that many pages.
C. Write in the day (for you to determine) the reading is due, along with discussions in the book clubs.
For me, at this time, we are reading at home, and meeting once a week.
It is useful to read something simple, as a class, as an example on how to respond efficiently to the questions.
