A creative way to asesss reading comprehension with ANY novel or short story!
With the reader’s brochure assignment, your students will use multiple critical reading strategies and address several reading and writing standards along the way. This is a fantastic alternative to traditional quizzes, reader response journals, or study guides.
This product is great for teachers who dread giving traditional novel quizzes that are based on memorizing facts and details. The reader’s brochure is designed to be given as an open book assignment that will have your students thinking critically, reading actively, and digging deeper!
This listing includes FOUR slightly different PDF brochure options as well as customizable Word and Pages files so you can edit the assignment to your students' needs. I've also included two sample rubrics that I've used to assess the assignments in the past. These rubrics give your students a snapshot of your expectations and make grading much easier for you!
