Students will keep track of what they've read and be able to rate or "score" each piece of literature. My students occasionally struggle with remembering titles and authors; therefore, we now have a place to keep track!
While meeting with students, we discuss the genres they find most appealing. I can easily guide them toward books they may be more interested in based on which texts they are less likely to "abandon."
My goal is to foster a love of reading. This record has been a big help in guiding students to find their own books to love!
