I created this bookmark to help students in my reading intervention course record the following while they read: duration, pages, brief summaries, unknown vocabulary, and overall comprehension. Students completed one bookmark each week and were expected to complete 100 minutes of reading outside class time. This proved successful because it allowed me to monitor students' free reading time while they self-monitored. If students were reading too many pages in a short time span or struggled to find new words for two weeks in a row, for example, I encouraged them to find a more challenging book. On the other hand, if they had a hard time summarizing the text, couldn't fit all their unknown words on the back of the bookmark, or were reading too few pages for long periods of time, I guided them toward a lower level book. This simple monitoring system helped students from multiple levels (middle school to college ELL) increase their reading abilities.
The .doc version of this may have a few formatting issues, but I uploaded it this way so you can modify the bookmark before you print the document. [If you set your document margins at 0.6 all around with 0.5 header and footer, and change the basic font to Bookman Old Style with Brittanic Bold headlines, the problem will be solved.] Otherwise, if you'd like the PDF version, please contact me.
You'll want to copy the bookmarks double-sided and cut each copy in half (I printed them on bright colored card stock, but you can print them on whatever paper you'd like).
