These are slips of paper to hand out after every chapter.
Simply hand out each "reading check" (or quiz) to the kids when they enter the classroom, then grade them aloud.
I modeled this on my college English professor's quizzes (Aaron Schab, University of Idaho)
There are less than 5 questions per chapter. Really short, obvious answers. Either you read the chapter or you didn't. It's 'who's the main character' or 'who kissed the main character' type questions-- not rocket science.
I felt the need for this because my students just don't read unless they are being GRADED on doing so. ALSO, this way when I start discussion, I don't have to embarrass those who didn't read by expecting them to speak up. Sometimes, nobody read, and so I change the entire lesson plan around THAT DAY-- just because of these dumb reading quizzes.
Answer Key is included (obviously!)
And, (because why the heck not) there's BONUS MATERIAL also included
