Independent Book Review Writing Assignment with Checklist and Rubric
I use this assignment with my 6th and 7th graders, but it could be adapted for 8th or 9th grade as well. It includes options for both fiction and nonfiction books, so my students can use whatever independent reading book they have.
Assignment Sheet with sample reviews for both fiction and nonfiction books
Checklists for both fiction and nonfiction book reviews for students to use before turning in their final assignment
Rubric for grading, with criteria broken down into the 6 writing traits
