This log helps students summarize what they've read during a given reading period, either silent reading in class or assigned outside reading. Students must summarize their reading to assess comprehension but also use critical thinking skills to write a personal response to what they're read. Writing prompts are included to help students with the personal response component. This log can be used for both fiction and non-fiction reading, which is important considering the emphasis on non-fiction reading in the Common Core standards. The log can also be used to help students prepare for discussion in literature circles.
