Independent Reading Discussion Questions and Rubric
Students are to keep a Reader's Notebook, where they respond to their independent reading choices. For this rubric, they must answer three questions in their notebook after reading, put a star beside their "best answer", and submit all three for marking.
The rubric has 10 marks for thorough completion, 10 marks for ideas and content, and 10 marks for support from the text.
This assignment has encouraged extensive reading response for intermediate readers and allows for teachers to monitor the quality of student writing without heavy-duty marking!
