Reading Response questions and prompts for fiction and non-fiction books that are aligned to Common Core Standards. All prompts ask for citation of textual evidence from the book a student is reading for pleasure and require the student to engage in the book he is reading on a deeper level to build critical thinking skills. I copy the fiction prompts on bright green paper and non-fiction on bright red and then laminate them. I store them in the front of the Reading Response pendaflex holder where students keep their reading folders. Also included is a rubric aligned to Common Core Standards and a rubric score card that I staple to each response when I grade to show where students are and aren't proficient. Students find the prompts extremely helpful in fostering meaningful engagement in self-selected reading and keep students from giving merely summary.
