I created these assessments to measure how my fourth grade readers are able to analyze nonfiction text and find the main idea and supporting details.
Included in the package:
Nonfiction Summary Homework Template and Rubric
Nonfiction Reading Journal Rubric
Main Idea and Supporting Detail Rubric
I assign the Nonfiction Summary Homework every week instead of a reading log. This way, I am able to tell if my students are not only reading, but comprehending the text and finding text features. (Please see my Nonfiction Text Feature packet for handouts and assessments.)
