In addition to those tasks, students answer analysis questions related to the novel. There is also space for a Do Now or Mental Meditation the next day and a daily reading quiz. The Do Now for each assignment is blank so that you can customize for your classroom. It will help you and the students stay organized. The organizer in the beginning is an additional responsibility sheet. If students do their homework they get a stamp that acts as an additional homework grade! Students love to get a completed sheet.
