This independent reading packet allows students the freedom of selecting their own novel that falls into a certain genre and the ability to move at their own pace while reading/completing the packet. The activities within the packet focus on reading skills such as summarizing, predictions, vocabulary, story & genre elements, and much more. This is a nice project to assign at the start of the nine weeks to be completed on their own - during "I'm finished, what should I do" time, at home, or whenever. It also forces students out of their routine genre selection. Includes an evaluation form as well.
