Independent reading studies are to be completed independently by a student, primarily outside of the classroom. This project is to be completed over a non-fiction book. After creating a book out of five pieces of paper, the student must write 50 notes over material they have read. The student will then write a haiku, couplet, and free verse poem over what they have read, followed by a work cited page.
Before giving the study, the student will have to know what a haiku, couplet, and free verse poem is. I also give the students a few minutes a few days a week to work on their project in the classroom. This gives me time to work with students independently if they need help.
