Description

Looking to improve your classroom culture, engagement level, and rapport with students? Try using a reading interest inventory to gather invaluable data you can use as an element of a choice reading program.

With 58 questions ranging from current hobbies and future careers to experiences, beliefs, passions, and priorities, students will be engaged and reflecting in meaningful ways as they provide you with information you can use to transform the reading culture in your classroom.

By gathering student data up front in the form of a reading interest inventory, teachers can inform their instruction. You'll better be able to select reading material for whole-class instruction as well as being able to more easily pair individual students with books they might enjoy.

Reading interest inventories are great for use at the beginning of the year, before the start of any reading program, as an element of a reading intervention class, or even for use in the middle of the year when students just appear unengaged and apathetic with course texts.

This reading interest inventory was designed for high school students but could easily be used with middle school as well.

NOTE: THIS RESOURCE IS READY FOR DISTANCE LEARNING AND FACE-TO-FACE INSTRUCTION. INCLUDED, YOU WILL FIND ONE SECURE PDF AND ONE SECURE GOOGLE DRIVE (GOOGLE SLIDES) VERSION OF THIS RESOURCE.

You might also find these independent reading journals, discussion task cards for fiction and nonfiction, or presentation on why reading matters helpful when implementing literature circles, reader response, intervention programs, book club, and other forms of choice reading in the classroom.

***Please note that this reading interest inventory is available as part of a larger independent reading bundle.
