An independent reading project to use with middle or high school students. This could be an in-class reading project, a readers and writers' workshop idea, a summer or winter break assignment, or an independent quarterly literature assignment to encourage kids to read at home, for pleasure, and share their books with the class. It also helps students work on their presentation skills when they present the book and visual in a book chat format.
This assignment contains the goals, the requirements, the grading criteria, a list of visual presentation options, and a list of journal/reading log options. The book chat rubric is also available for purchase.
