Description

Need a way to hold students accountable for choice reading? Whether you're using literature circles, a book club format, or some other type of independent reading program, these digital reading response journal prompts will keep students engaged while allowing them an avenue to share what they are comprehending from their books.

Research shows that asking students to write about what they are reading is one of the most beneficial activities we can ask students to do. And, that's exactly what these prompts can help to accomplish.

The twenty prompts in these reading response journals are geared toward a variety of types of novels. You'll find prompts that will work with fiction as well as some that would be equally appropriate for nonfiction. Plus, they cover a wide range of literature and writing standards.

These reading response journal prompts are engaging, versatile, and will encourage students to thoughtfully reflect on what they have read while making connections, inferring, analyzing, evaluating, and more.

Students are encouraged to use textual evidence to support their responses, and based upon their writing, you will have a window into how they are processing their novel. As such, these prompts work well as springboards for conferring with students about their choice reading novels.

CONTENTS:

  • Suggested use
  • Grading guidance and built-in rubric for teacher convenience and student self-assessment
  • 20 engaging and thought-provoking reading response journal prompts
  • A digital version in Google Slides format
  • A secure PDF version
  • An editable version of the prompts in PPT with basic fonts

Journal topics range from thematic concepts to personal responses and from social-media to reading strategies.

These prompts are appropriate for junior high or high school students. I space them out throughout the course of the year, using 2 or 3 each month, to track students' reading pace and comprehension, but they can also be used more regularly as a daily digital reading reflection for distance learning.

IS IT EDITABLE?

This resource is not editable in that the font and clipart is secured on each Google Slides document. However, you can change the slide backgrounds, add additional slides, or remove some to fit your needs.

***This lesson is available as part of a larger INDEPENDENT READING BUNDLE.
