PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here's a FREE rubric for a good, concise reading project for middle school or high school social studies--(especially History classes)--complete with well-explained writing-topic choices and a full set of parameters to get your students to turn in a thoughtful, balanced report on an appropriate book. Your prep-work is done for you--all you have to do is approve each of their books and grade the reports when they come in according to your own system. For best results, schedule a class period in your school's library and give the kids time to browse for books and approach you with selections to be approved. Have students write their approved book titles onto a list with their names--this will be important later so you can follow up with the students who are procrastinating about finding a book. Some students may actually need you to just assign them one that you think is appropriate; but most appreciate the freedom to choose. I've had great success with this project when it comes to getting kids to actually read all the way through a book they would not otherwise have picked up. [In order to adapt the project to the grade level of your students, simply adjust up or down the minimum number of words required for the report.]
