PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This double entry journal for use as a reading activity for any novel is a GREAT way to assess students! We've included numerous ways for this journal to be utilized by giving students choices for not only the piece of literature they pick, but also for how they are asked to respond to the text. In an attempt to help students dive further into their analysis of the text, we've included sentence starts for them as well. This is an excellent (and fun!) way to have students work closely with a text. We've also included a rubric to make it easier for you to grade :)
