Students should have a voice in the books they read during guided reading, book clubs, and literature circles. In her book, The Book Whisperer, Donalyn Miller speaks of an activity called a Book Pass. In this activity, readers are passed a book and are asked to read the blurb, the reviews, and perhaps a page or two. Depending on the age of the student, or the genre of the text, they may flip through and look at visual features as well. Students record the title, the author, their thoughts, and then assign the book a star rating. Teachers can use this information to help form book groups. Students can use this information to add an interesting book to their “Books to Read” list.
