Moving away from the traditional reading log, the Independent Reading Analysis Form provides students with the opportunity to analyze their independent reading.
Once the routine is up and running in your classroom, your students will understand and practice literary analysis on a regular basis (ideally, twice per week). This is a structured, standards-based assignment that is completed independently by your students.
Students will choose from seven different response options (six of which are CCSS-aligned) to respond to their independent reading. The entire document is editable-- feel free to add or remove any type of analysis you choose. I've included: Point of View, Figurative Language, Vocabulary, Summary, Setting, and Theme. There's also an option for Free Response (limited).

This is specifically aligned to 7th grade standards, but check back in November 2016 for 6th-grade and 8th-grade specific iRAFs.
