I use this page whenever we read a novel as a whole class. It helps give students a purpose for reading, gives them something to share/discuss, and helps me track their understanding of each chapter read. I even get use out if it in order to read a book before the students do! It gives me the quick notes I need to refer to, or I use it as a review before we read a book that I haven't read in a while!
You can get as many uses out of this printable! Use this chapter log/organizer for whole class, small group, or independent reading; use it for novel studies/lit. circles/book clubs/genre studies; you can even use it as a reading log!
No matter which way you decide to use it, it will help your students keep track of the important things in each and every chapter that they read/the class reads/their group reads!
Students will read ANY text of your/their choice, record the most important events and record a quote to explain/support the chapter title-if no chapter title was given, they will make one up as if they were the author (they love that part). Designed for multiple uses, multi-use. Use with fiction/non-fiction narratives.
Flexible use options:
-use as part of a packet
-use as a document in lit. circles/independent reading
-use for HW
