One way to encourage reading and help students become proficient readers is by using Reader Response Strategies. Readers who connect, comment, summarize, visualize, and question a text are students who build comprehension skills. They are also more likely to enjoy what they are reading, which in turn, allows them to read more and become more skilled.
A Reader Response bookmark encourages students to stop and use one of the strategies when they are starting to get out of the reading zone, are confused, or need to check their comprehension.
A teacher can ask students to use their RR bookmark after each page or chapter or when they feel they need it.
A double entry journal (also in my shop) can also be used with the RR bookmark as a place to record the reader's response.
Tip- bookmarks also make helpful tools for tracking words and lines when held sideways.
