I use this template with my reading groups to hold me accountable as a teacher. It also keeps me organized when I meet with the students. I have folders on each group, and I keep this template in the folders. When I meet with the groups, I open my folder to this page. Immediately, I can see what we accomplished the last time we met, and how we can move forward as a group. At the end of each session, I record the group’s activity. I love the comment section because I can add group notes and notes on individual students. I have also made three versions of the template with different word usage: standards, skills, strategy, etc. There is a section to mark the mastery level of the group.
