I assign this activity to my students while doing a novel study. I have seen my test scores go THROUGH THE ROOF and kids seem to have a much firmer grasp on the novel that we are reading. It has allowed a lot of my students to feel more comfortable in class discussion, and has taught them personal responsibility. I assign a bookmark for each chapter or a cluster of chapters, depending on the novel. I have this currently designed for my 6th grade students, but it can be adjusted to the grade level that you need.
