Independent Reading Partner Novel Study

One of the struggles I have as a teacher is how to keep my independent readers accountable for their reading while I am working with small focused reading groups. This product not only helps hold students accountable to the teacher, but they are held accountable by their reading partners as well.

With "Independent Reading Partner Novel Study" students form pairs to read the same novel. As students read by section, they respond to reading response journal prompts in letter form to their partners. Partners read and respond back before moving on to the next section.

This product not only supports students' reading and comprehension skills, but also writing skills as they respond to literature through letters to their partners.

Reading response journal prompts are based on CCSS in literature and language. Prompts include questions regarding the character, setting, connections, problem, solution, connections, predictions, compare and contrast, figurative language, and much, much more! On every prompt, students are asked to use textual evidence to support their answers.

This product includes:

>PAPER AND INK SAVER OPTION: Reading response journal prompts (3 pages)

> NEW OPTION: Partner Novel Study Journals - These journals have a cover, reading response prompt , and area for written response from both partners. Each journal is 9 pages.
