Product Description
This resource bundle has recently been updated to include printable handouts AND resources formatted for Google Drive, Google Classroom, and Microsoft OneDrive!

Give your students the choice to select books independently! So, how can you grade students’ independent reading choices when you haven’t read the book yourself?

Ban those boring generic book tests! Look no further than here. The five technology rich projects in this bundle will motivate your students to read their books and will ensure that they have independent reading accountability!

The resources in this teaching bundle can be used with any novel study! You can even implement these five reading projects with nonfiction and short stories as an alternative way for students to showcase their learning.

Each resource can be used with Google Chrome, online access, and is compatible with any device or computer!

All student handouts and project rubrics are available in both Word and pdfs. Teachers will be able to make edits if needed!

One of the most valuable resources in this purchase includes Symbaloo webmixes for free audio and video websites. With over 104 bookmarked websites ready for you and your students to access, students will be able to locate multimedia resources for their projects that are not blocked by the school filter.

This teaching bundle and the wealth of digital resources bookmarked for you will be used throughout the year – any time students need to have access to multimedia files and content!

This comes at an incredible price that is less than $3.00 a project!

*Please note that Glogster EDU is part of the paid Education Apps package for Chromebooks.

Teachers can still use Glogster by signing up for the trial version and will be given a class code for 125 students. This trial version will not be used beyond one year and one project, however.

Teachers will need to request their school purchase a subscription or they can use the Glogster materials (including student handouts) with a different website that creates interactive online posters or flyers.

Padlet (both a website and app) can be an easy substitution and all planning materials and grading rubric can be modified literally by just changing the name from Glogster to Padlet!

This is an accommodation that will ensure all teachers can use every resource in this packet and implement these projects at no cost - year after year!

You and your students will not be disappointed with this exciting, new interactive way to assess their independent reading choices through the use of technology!

This resource is being sold as a bundle! Save over $3.00 by buying this independent reading projects and assessments bundle instead of purchasing each book project separately!
