This is a detailed form for use when observing students working in book clubs. It has places to list club members and to record notes for different days of observations. The real benefit of this form is its list of nine different book club skills/expectations teachers can use to guide their observations. The list includes skills such as "Club has getting-started strategies and the conversation begins quickly." that are key to students working successfully in any book club.
The form can also be used as a list of teaching points for teachers who are guiding students to get better at book club work.
Though the language used on this form my own, some ideas were influenced by materials created by the Reading and Writing Project. Teachers using a reading workshop approach will likely find this form compatible with their instructional techniques.
This form could also be given to older students (grades 5-8) as a self-assessment.
