This resource is a set of 10 different quick checks/exit slips to be used with an independent reading curriculum. Each quick check focuses on a different element (book choice, writing style, tone, syntax/diction, summary of events, setting, POV, intended audience, conflict and mood). Some are quite simple and other are more complex, so they can build on each other throughout the year. These quick checks pair well with mini-lessons based on the literary elements covered. Most quick checks require a brief summary of the most recent reading and ask for some type of textual evidence, meeting multiple standards. Use these to keep your students accountable for their independent reading while extending into literary elements and writing style.
