Help your students to love reading with the Independent Reading/SSR Resources: Reading Response Questions. This resource will help you to help assess an independent reading time or Silent Sustained Reading (SSR) program (also known as Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) and Reading Workshop). Use the Reading Response Questions to help reflect on what they have read in their SSR book. Students select a question or two each reading session that theyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½d like to respond to and record their thoughts in their readerÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s notebook. This document is also included in the Independent Reading/SSR Resources: All-in-One DEAL and the Start of School, Team-Building, and Reading MEGA Package.
