This Interactive Reading Bookmark is a tri-fold bookmark (front and back) that can be used and applied to any piece of literature. The bookmark contains annotation symbols and text-text, text-to-self, text-to-world questions to ask themselves.
On the inside of the bookmark are three duplicate spaces (for three chapters) where the students can write the gist of the chapter, choose an unfamiliar word and make a context clue connections, and a text connection section. In addition, there is space for the title of the book, the author, and the students' name.
*You can duplicate this bookmark over and over for an entire novel.
I used this for To Kill a Mockingbird and The Cay, and it worked wonders for the students. I gave it to them every three chapters, and in the end, they had gist statements for the chapters.
