My students enjoy responding to their reading because it is quick and to the point but also allows them to elaborate if needed. I find them easier to assess because it prompts discussion while keeping them focused on predicting, questioning, vocabulary/clarifying, summarizing and responding. This practice provides students the opportunity to further explain their reasoning and attach it to their logic. It can be used with any type of article, short story or chapter book. INCLUDES: Rubric to assess worksheet.
