Life today requires the ability to read and to interpret what has been read, whether it is a blog, game directions, or emails at work. The Common Core State Standards require students to not only understand what they read, but also to try and make connections to other works of literature, self, and world, extending the ideas that are presented in the story. This assignment is designed to help students work toward mastering those standards.
This zip file includes a reading log (conclusions, theme, summary, dialogue, and a place for students to write their own question), a genre cheat sheet, and a student help guide.
This reading log is designed to be a weekly HW assignment totaling 50 points.
