Want your students to value reading more? Want to help them find more books that would interest them? Try out these rubrics to get them considering what they value in books and to read each others' suggestions on a teacher managed Tumblr page- we are entering the 20th century folks! The rubrics also encourage students to analyze what they like or dislike about books and Why.
For the memoirs, I gave the students a list of good options and rented quite a few from the library so they could thumb through them. They also could propose one they wanted that wasn't on the list so long as I approved it.
See this website for what the completed book and memoir reviews looked like: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/mschaibly
- Package includes:
- Book Review Rubric: for favorite or least favorite books that students have already read
- Memoir Review Rubric: students research a topic brought up in the memoir as well
- Memoir suggested reads (these are meant for high school students, but some of them I would suggest censoring based on your group of students)
