This resource is a bundle that includes 3 resources (each available separately from my TPT store):
Personal Reading Goal page (two styles - different title colors)
Personal Reading Record pages
Independent Book Review page
At the start of the school year, each of my student sets a personal goal for a number of books they will read over the course of the year. I don't limit students in the types of books that they may read, but I do try to steer them towards books that are age, interest, and level appropriate, and towards books that I consider "quality literature". :)
For every book that a student completes, he/she records the book on their own personal record, which I keep stored in files or binders, and then writes a review of the book using the review page, which I call a "GoodReads Review". The review serves as an assessment for me, but also serves the dual purpose of going into a GoodReads Binder, where students go to look for new free reading book options. I like this approach, because students have real peer audiences for their writing besides just me, and consequently, they tend to write more thoughtful reviews. The reviews themselves also often become a source of discussion for the students, which is so much fun to see. They begin sharing with each other aloud as well as in written form, and get into their own debates about books and characters, which is what literature class is all about!
