Fostering independent reading is key to help students become strong readers, writers and critical thinkers! Help develop reading habits for YOUR students by integrating book reviews!
In my classroom I allowed students to chose a book to read on their own for an extra credit opportunity. Students met reading milestones that I set for them at then at the end completed a simple book review for a few points extra credit. By the end of each year there is an extensive library of peer book reviews in a binder for students to use before choosing their next book! By providing students with a peer review opportunity, they become the experts in their field and can seek each other's opinions and literary preferences.
Book reviews made reading contagious in my classroom as I hope they will also in yours! Use this book review template in any way you choose to encourage your students to read.
