Purpose: To get students to participate in Extensive reading. The goal of this activity is also for teachers to assess whether students are doing the required reading without handing out tests that de-motivate the students to learn for pleasure or fun.
Description: This quick activity is most productive with middle or high schoolers. The activity helps teachers assess the reading that is being done by the students to hold the students accountable for reading, but to not discourage them from reading by having them complete discouraging quizzes or reviews about the reading.
This activity may take students 5-10 minutes to complete. It may take teachers 4 minutes to grade.
Materials needed: Students must have books that they are reading extensively with a partner.
