Reading Response Letters
After reading The Reading Zone by Nancie Atwell, I was inspired to implement reading response letters in my classroom. It took me a long time to find a system that worked for me and my students, but I am really happy with the result!
I use this at a 6th grade level, but it can be adapted to many different grade levels.
This product includes:
-a detailed description of my procedure (which can also be found here: http://postgradprep.com/?p=1226)
-an explanation of what a reading response letter is and how I grade it (I use this on my website for parents)
-an outline of what an A+ reading response letter looks like
-the "If You Are Stuck" page that I have students glue into their notebooks
-Free Choice reading response directions for students (I use this once and awhile to break from the normal routine)
Please let me know if there is anything that needs to be changed or if you have any questions. All reviews are appreciated!
