Using this rubric, you will document each student's progress during an independent reading unit. In my class, there were 8 journal prompts and 8 vocabulary activities in a binder -- throughout the unit, they would work on one at a time and then they were marked on their chart once completed. The upper rubric can be used to assess the amount of reading they completed. The unit lasted about four weeks and students would work at their own pace. The chart helped to see who was using their time effectively and who needed more direct instruction on specific skills.
