I love using SSR in my classroom. This year, I've had the students work on an independent project with their SSR book each marking period.

This project was designed to combine SSR with a few introductory concepts of persuasive writing. Students will learn (or refresh their knowledge of) citations, quotations, persuasive writing structure, supporting an argument, and textual evidence. In addition, it will give your students the opportunity to share great books with one another.

This project is flexible to fit into your teaching style, but this is how I use it:
I assign this project the first or second week of school, not too long after students select their first SSR book. I let them both read and work on their project during SSR, which takes about 15-20 minutes at the beginning of each class. If I have a sub or if they finish assignments early... they have something to work on. I spend a day or two talking about citations and plagiarism, using the project to model what I need them to learn, but those are the only full days devoted to the project. I grade this as a test and give them a short break before assigning their next independent reading project.
