Often times when we ask a student to read a lesson outside of class, they tend not to complete the task. I created this sheet (for middle school students) so that they would come to class with the main idea of the intended lesson. A parent's signature is requested not only to help a teacher to communicate their expectation, but also to keep parents informed as to the current topic in class. I hope you find this useful!! I have copied the form twice so that you can cut the sheet in two.
