Have you ever been told by someone who's not even in the classroom that students really need to have choices in what they read? And then you're like, "Great, but how do I grade them?" If the guru your district has hired can tell you, then use those resources. If not, and you can't find decent ones online for free, this download is well-worth the price.
I made this choice book assignment completely up to the student, which means students even decided the total number of points their grades were based out of, up to 120 points. The simple fact that half of my students attempted less than the points needed to get a B says a lot about what they expected to get out of school. Anyhow, use it as full-choice like me or as another 14 options for the students when doing 'book reports.'
I used this in the nature unit, and I highlighted all of the times I used the word, so you can use it with a nature unit or you can change the word to love or friendship or vampires. Or friendly vampires in love.
Mostly, this download gives YOU a few more options. Use them as homework or as a project. I used this one at the end of the year, after all other writing assignments were in, and I only graded one or two of the assignments, leaving the rest to the students to figure out.
