This is a reading gaming project allowing students to choose novels and nonfiction books that interest them from a variety of genres. The students are competing to earn points, however their grade is based on blog posts or reading analysis essays due every two weeks.
This reading competition could be as long as you would like to run it. I am choosing to use it over one quarter, however it could span a semester or even the school year. I am so excited to start this competition!
A veteran teacher may want to try something new with reading instead of the standard book summaries. A new teacher may see this as a lifesaver when it comes to planning a literature analysis project based on the standards. I hope you find this to be an excellent resource!
This unit was created for grades 6-9. I used the 7th grade CCSS when aligning because that is what I teach. However these could easily be replaced with the anchor standard or grade level standard.
I used elements from all around the internet to put this together, I am not trying to make a profit off of this creation. I am just so proud of how it turned out!
This unit includes the following:
● Lit-opoly game instructions
● Links to Free printables such as game boards, and editable cards
● Blog/ Essay Rubric
● Student Points Tracking Sheet
● Property Cards
● Blog/Essay Topic Starters
I hope you find this to be a useful resource for your middle school ELA classroom!
