Help students choose novels for independent reading with this activity. Great to use at the beginning of the school year, this activity uses a strategy called IRA in which students evaluate their book choices by interest, readability, and appropriateness. This resource also includes a post-reading activity in which each student writes a "Tease to Read" to pique the interest of his classmates.
